CdSe quantum dots were prepared by molecular beam epitaxy on homoepitaxially grown ZnSe (001) via thermally activated reorganization of an initially two-dimensional film. In spite of the difficulties related to the ZnSe substrate treatment prior to the epitaxial growth, atomically smooth sample surfaces could be achieved with increasing growth time and layer-by-layer growth was realized. The photoluminescence quantum yield of the quantum dots grown on homoepitaxial ZnSe is only slightly reduced in comparison to the standard epitaxy using GaAs as substrate. Distinct single-dot features were identified using a micro-optical setup. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    We studied the dependence of the photoluminescence emission energy of InGaAs/AlGaAs quantum dot (QD) structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy as a function of the Al and In content in barriers and QDs, respectively. We show that emissions are blue-shifted by increasing both the Al content in...
