GaAs microdisk microcavities coupled to monolithic air-suspended waveguide structures are fabricated with out-of-plane light coupling achieved via the grating couplers monolithically integrated in the input and output ports. Photoluminescence signal of the whispering gallery modes is extracted from the grating couplers through the waveguide. Quality factors of modes are obtained through a transmission measurement with quality factors of up to 9500 and transmission depth of ΔT=35%.

    We have studied the optical properties of InAs site-controlled quantum dots (SCQDs) grown on pre-patterned GaAs substrates. Since InAs nucleates preferentially on the lithography motifs, the location of the resulting QDs is determined by the pattern, which is fabricated by local oxidation...

    Electroreflectance was employed to study the electric-field effect on the interband transitions of InAs quantum dots embedded in an In[sub 0.16]Ga[sub 0.84]As matrix. The electric field caused an asymmetric quantum-confined Stark shift, which revealed a nonzero built-in dipole moment in the...
