Single strain-induced quantum dots are isolated for optical experiments by selective removal of the inducing InP islands from the sample surface. Unpolarized emission of single exciton, biexciton, and triexciton transitions are identified by power-dependent photoluminescence spectroscopy. Employing time-resolved experiments performed at different excitation powers, we find a pronounced shift of the rise and decay times of these different transitions as expected from cascaded single photon emissions. Good agreement is found for a rate equation model for a three step cascade.

    We propose a new method of obtaining a photoluminescence spectrum of a single quantum dot in a self- -assembled system of CdTe/ZnTe quantum dots. The method is based on the resonant excitation of a coupled dots pair. The comparison of the spectra in resonance and out of resonance enables the...
