We report the application of time- and polarization-resolved photoluminescence up-conversion spectroscopy to the study of spin capture and energy relaxation in positively and negatively charged, as well as neutral InAs self-assembled quantum dots. When compared to the neutral dots, we find that carrier capture and relaxation to the ground state is much faster in the highly charged dots, suggesting that electron–hole scattering dominates this process. The long spin lifetime, short capture time, and high radiative efficiency of the positively charged dots, indicates that these structures are superior to both quantum well and neutral quantum dot light-emitting diode spin detectors for spintronics applications. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
