    Data are presented on InAlGaAs quantum dot ensembles that possess different degrees of lateral tunnel coupling for electrons and holes. Atomic force microscope images show that even for moderate densities (∼4.8×10[sup 10] cm[sup -2]), but with shallow potentials, many dots of an...

    We have studied the single-electron transport spectrum of a localized level embedded into a double-barrier resonant tunneling structure.

    With the nonstochastic quantum mechanical study of a quantum dot light emitter, we find that fluorescence intermittency statistics are universal and insensitive to the microscopic nature of the tunneling fluctuation between quantum dot and trapping state. We also investigate the power-law...

    Resonant tunneling through a single layer of self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) is compared to tunneling through two layers of vertically aligned (stacked) dots. The difference can be viewed as going from a two-dimensional emitter to a zero-dimensional emitter. The temperature dependence of...
