    Ultra-thin gold nanowires with uniform diameters of 2 nm and lengths of over 100 μm are synthesized via the reduction of gold(III) chloride in an oleylamine matrix. The gold nanowires, dispersed on an oxidized substrate, are top-contacted with metallic electrodes to manufacture back gated...

    The authors demonstrate operation of a charge readout scheme for quantum dots in a semiconductor nanowire using a quantum point contact defined in a GaAs/AlGaAs two-dimensional electron gas beneath the nanowire. The quantum dots were fabricated by epitaxial growth of InP barriers along a n-type...

    We present a technique to measure gate-controlled photoluminescence (PL) on arrays of semiconductor nanowire (NW) capacitors using a transparent film of Indium-Tin-Oxide (ITO) wrapping around the nanowires as the gate electrode. By tuning the wrap-gate voltage, it is possible to increase the PL...

    An electrically-pumped single-photon source design with a predicted efficiency of 89% is proposed. The design is based on a quantum dot embedded in a photonic nanowire with tailored ends and optimized contact electrodes. Unlike cavity-based approaches, the photonic nanowire features broadband...

    In-plane optical anisotropies of (001)-oriented InAs/InP self-assembled quantum wires and dots structures are studied by means of photoreflectance in the spectral region of the E[sub 1] transition of bulk InAs. The energy position of the transition observed in the quantum wires depends on the...

    Wirelike InAs quatum dots (QDs) grown on 2°-off (100) GaAs substrates by changing the thickness of the InAs layer were successfully fabricated. The sizes of the InAs QDs along the step lines increased with increasing the thickness of the InAs layer, and their increases were attributed to...

    Among the growth approaches being considered currently to realize quantum dots and quantum wires is the selective epitaxial growth on patterned substrates. With this technique the feature size and geometry are mainly limited by the lithographic process. With optical lithography we achieved a...

    A theory of the Zeeman effect for electrons in one- and zero-dimensional semiconductor heterostructures is developed. A relation is established between the number of linearly independent components of the g-factor tensor and the point symmetry of a low-dimensional system. A specific calculation...
