We have grown InP quantum dots in GaInP by gas-source molecular-beam epitaxy on sharp tips etched out of a GaAs substrate. The growth parameters were optimized to produce single quantum dots on the tips, predominantly at the edges. Intensity correlation measurements of the fluorescence from single dots on these tips reveal antibunched photon emision. We propose to use these tip structures with stable single photon emitters at their apex as active probes for further controlled experiments in quantum and nano-optics.

    We report on the growth of InAs quantum dots (QDs) in GaInAsP on InP (100) substrates by chemical-beam epitaxy, with emission wavelength in the 1.55 μm region. Submonolayer coverage of GaP on the GaInAsP buffer before deposition of the InAs QDs results in most efficient suppression of As/P...

Spatial resonance between single positioned QDs and GaAs/AlAs micropillar cavities was achieved using cross markers for precise SCQD-cavity alignment. Cavity effects are clearly...
