The aspect ratio and faceting evolution of quantum dots grown at 500 °C were studied as a function of postgrowth annealing temperature. We show that faceting and aspect ratio strictly depend on growth conditions. The evolution toward {136} and {137} facets is kinetically limited and occurs under different experimental conditions. Furthermore long annealing procedures lead to the occurrence of low aspect ratio domes different from those forming at higher growth temperatures.

    The authors report that the darkening and brightening of photoluminescence from PbS quantum dots can be controlled by adjusting the temperature and excitation intensity. Intensity of the photoluminescence from PbS quantum dots increased with time (photobrightening) when temperature was below 150...

    Self-assembly of highly stoichiometric SiC quantum dots still remains a major challenge for the gas/plasma-based nanodot synthesis. By means of a multiscale hybrid numerical simulation of the initial stage (0.1–2.5 s into the process) of deposition of SiC/Si(100)quantum dot nuclei, it is...

    We study quantum entanglement in a single-level quantum dot in the linear-response regime. The results show, that the maximal quantum value of the conductance 2e2/h not always match the maximal entanglement. The pairwise entanglement between the quantum dot and the nearest atom of the lead is...

    The Stokes shift of colloidal 4.7 nm PbS quantum dots was measured between 5 and 300 K at incrementally increasing continuous laser intensities. The results demonstrate Stokes shift tuning by optical means only at stable given temperatures due to optically enforced electronic state alteration in...

    We have optimized the molecular-beam epitaxy growth conditions of self-organized InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) to achieve a low density of dots emitting at 1300 nm at low temperature. We used an ultralow InAs growth rate, lower than 0.002 ML/s, to reduce the density to 2 dots/μm2 and an InGaAs...
