This article presents information on quantum dot arrays. Researchers have reported on a technique to realize long-range ordered quantum dot (QD) arrays with pronounced size homogeneity. The technique comprises patterning of a GaAs substrate surface with an anodic aluminum oxide membrane and subsequent self-assembled InAs QD growth. The researchers developed this technique because they claimed that an effective means to synthesize three-dimensional confined nanostructures, which possess a high degree of spatial ordering did not exist before.
