ABSTRACT
We report highly uniform self-assembled InAs quantum dots (QDs) emitting at 1.3 μm, grown on GaAs substrates by low-pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. By optimizing the InAs growth rate and capping the QDs with GaAs using triethylgallium as a gallium source, we have achieved a narrow photoluminescence (PL) inhomogeneous linewidth of 16.5 meV (at 7 K) from QDs with a density of 1.7×1010 cm-2. Furthermore, we show by temperature-dependent PL measurements that the QDs exhibit almost no dependence of linewidth on temperature due to their high uniformity. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    In most previous reports on Al-gated n-GaN/SiO2 metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) structures, the work-function difference between A1 and n-GaN (φms) has been chosen as 0 V by assuming that the work function of the A1 gate and n-GaN are both 4.1 eV. In this letter, φms is determined as...

    We have studied the electrical and photoluminescence (PL) properties of a Si delta-doped GaN layer grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. The Hall mobility and electron sheet concentration are 726 cm[sup 2]/V s and 1.9x10[sup 12] cm[sup -2], respectively, at 2 K. A PL peak located at...

    We demonstrate the triggered generation of photon pairs by the cascaded biexciton-exciton emission from a single (In,Ga)As/GaAs quantum dot (QD) in a pillar microcavity. Photon cross-correlation measurements between the biexciton and exciton decay reveal highly asymmetric features under...

    Analytical expressions describing the change in the surface conductivity (? G) as a result of the adsorption of positively and negatively charged atoms are obtained. It is shown that the ratio of ? G to the adsorption-induced change in the work function (??) rather weakly depends on the surface...

    Metal gate work function enhancement using thin AlNx interfacial layers has been evaluated. It was found that band edge effective work functions (∼5.10 eV) can be achieved on hafnium-based high dielectric constant (high-k) materials using the AlNx interfacial layer and TiSiN electrodes. It...

    The band structure of MoS2 strongly depends on the number of layers, and a transition from indirect to direct-gap semiconductor has been observed recently for a single layer of MoS2. Single-layer MoS2 therefore becomes an efficient emitter of photoluminescence even at room temperature. Here, we...

    Acceptors in liquid encapsulated Czochralski-grown undoped gallium antimonide (GaSb) were studied by temperature dependent Hall measurement and positron lifetime spectroscopy (PLS). Because of its high concentration and low ionization energy, a level at EV+34 meV is found to be the important...

    The photoluminescence of dilute nitride semiconductors shows a number of features that are not common for other semiconductors, even for compound semiconductors. We studied several MBE grown InGaAsN samples with a nitrogen content between 0.9 and 1.8% and a MOCVD grown sample with 3% N and...
