Columnar (In,Ga)As quantum dots (QDs) with homogeneous composition and shape in the growth direction are realized by molecular-beam epitaxy on GaAs(100) substrates. The columnar (In,Ga)As QDs are formed on InAs seed QDs by alternating deposition of thin GaAs intermediate layers and monolayers of InAs with extended growth interruptions after each layer. The height of the columnar (In,Ga)As QDs is controlled by varying the number of stacked GaAs/InAs layers. The structural and optical properties are studied by cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and photoluminescence spectroscopy. With increase of the aspect ratio of the columnar QDs, the emission wavelength is redshifted and the linewidth is reduced.

    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...

    The far field radiation pattern of microdisk cavities embedding a quantum well is measured through angle resolved microphotoluminescence. The radiation pattern presents two narrow lobes slightly off the disk plane, in apparent contradiction with previous theoretical predictions. The observed...

    Tb-doped GaN quantum dots grown by molecular beam epitaxy have been studied. These nanostructures present intense photoluminescence from intra-4f transitions of Tb3+ ions. It has been found that Tb atoms enhance the desorption process of Ga adatoms from the growing surface, leading to a...
