In this work, we demonstrate the generation of a high-frequency pulsed single-photon stream. A quantum dot embedded in a pillar microcavity efficiently scatters photons when driven coherently with a narrow-band continuous wave laser. Simultaneously, the transition energy is periodically tuned by a surface acoustic wave propagating along the substrate at 1 GHz. The combined action of the light and strain fields on the quantum dot yields a periodic signal displaying anti-bunching. In addition, we are able to resolve multiple phonon sidebands in the emission spectrum.
