We present detailed experimental results of the temperature dependence of continuous wave and time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy in self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dot and quantum ring nanostructures. A dramatic increase in PL decay time of the excited and ground states is observed in InAs quantum rings at high temperature. We speculate that the longer PL lifetime in quantum rings is due to the interplay among the dark states, ground states, and the reduced wave function overlapping between electrons and holes. A rate equation model is proposed to interpret the observed temperature dependence of the ground state exciton lifetime.

    We demonstrate the self-assembled creation of a novel type of strain-free semiconductor quantum dot (QD) by local droplet etching (LDE) with Al to form nanoholes in AlGaAs or AlAs surfaces and subsequent filling with GaAs. Since the holes are filled with a precisely defined filling level, we...

    We have unambiguously estimated the vertical and lateral electronic couplings between quantum dots (QDs) by comparing the carrier lifetimes at different energy positions inside the ground state band. InGaAs/InGaAsP QDs on InP(100) substrate give photoluminescence around 1.55 μm and have the...

    From the transmission electron microscope image, the seven-stacked InAs/InAlGaAs QDs on an InP substrate were spatially ordered instead of usual on-top vertical alignment. The increasing rate of the QD size became almost saturated by increasing the number of layers. The photoluminescence (PL)...

    The transmission through coupled quantum dots (CQDs) is calculated using the coupled-channel recursion method. Our results reveal that the conductance peaks move to high energy as the CQDs radius decreases or the period increases. If we increase the transverse momentum the conductance peaks move...

    Carrier dynamics of InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) covered by a thin GaAs1-xSbx layer were investigated by time-resolved photoluminescence (PL). Both the power dependence of PL peak shift and the long decay time constants confirm the type-II band alignment at the GaAsSb–InAs interface....
