    GaAs quantum dots (QDs) of ultra-low density (ULD) are fabricated by filling of nanoholes in AlGaAs surfaces. The holes are drilled using self-assembled local droplet etching with Al droplets. By precisely controlling the arsenic flux and the substrate temperature, the QD density is reduced down...

    We have measured a large increase (by a factor of up to 50) in the room-temperature emission of InAs/GaAs self-assembled quantum dots subjected to a hydrogen-passivation treatment. Smaller enhancements were measured at low temperatures. We tentatively attribute the improved optical signal to...

    Postgrowth rapid thermal annealing was used to modify the structural and optical properties of the self-assembled InAs quantum dots grown on GaAs substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. It is found that significant narrowing of the luminescence linewidth (from 78.9 to 20.5 meV) from the InAs dot...
