We have developed a matrix layer structure, the InGaAs surface structure modified superlattice, to achieve high quality InAs quantum dots on (100) InP substrates. Formed by periodically repeating the group III- and group V-stabilized InGaAs layers, the InGaAs surface structure modified superlattice offers much greater advantages than the conventional InGaAs matrix layer for the growth of InAs quantum dots, where a thick InAs layer is required for the dot formation. By adjusting the number of period and the layer thickness of the superlattice structure, uniform InAs quantum dots are achieved even using an InAs deposition as thin as 2.5 monolayers. Photoluminescence measurements further verify a uniform size distribution of the achieved quantum dots. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    The authors report that the darkening and brightening of photoluminescence from PbS quantum dots can be controlled by adjusting the temperature and excitation intensity. Intensity of the photoluminescence from PbS quantum dots increased with time (photobrightening) when temperature was below 150...

    Micro-photoluminescence (PL) of capped and uncapped ordered single InAs quantum dots (QDs) on patterned GaAs (311)B substrates exhibits distinct emission lines which are broadened for uncapped QDs. This indicates strong interaction with surface states paving the way towards high-sensitivity...

    We study an photoluminescence line of a single, self assembled CdTe quantum dot embedded in a field-effect structure. As a reverse bias is applied the line becomes broader and its intensity is decreased as a result of enhanced escape of the photocreated carriers. We account for the observed...
