Glass spherical microcavities containing CdSe[sub x]S[sub 1-x] semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) are fabricated. The coupling between the optical emission of embedded CdSe[sub x]S[sub 1-x] QDs and spherical cavity modes is realized. When the luminescence of QDs is excited by a laser beam, the strong whispering gallery mode resonance with high Q factors is achieved in the photoluminescence spectra. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    A scanning probe microscope (SPM) can be used to image a single-electron quantum dot at liquid-He temperatures by recording the Coulomb blockade conductance as a charged SPM tip is scanned above. The Coulomb blockade produces a ring in the image as the first electron is added to the dot. If the...

    Abstract. In the near field of an illuminated scanning probe tip with a dimension much smaller than a light wavelength a tremendous field enhancement is possible. This effect is similar to field enhancement on small metal particles first investigated in SERS (surface-enhanced Raman...

    Diamond-like carbon (DLC) films were deposited on tungsten tips under KrF excimer laser irradiation in benzene solution. The deposition process was found to be highly dependent on tip sharpness. Tips with larger curvature radii and smaller aspect ratios could not be coated with DLC films under...

    Scanning probe microscopy methods can image samples with extremely high resolutions, opening up a wide range of applications in physics, chemistry and biology. However, these passive techniques, which trace the sample surface softly, give indirect topographic information. Here, we show an active...

    We investigated ZnCdSe/ZnSe quantum-dot structures which include planar and coherently strained three-dimensional islands with different sizes. Optical excitation of these islands well below the ZnSe band gap leads to a resonant enhancement of the Zn[sub 0.7]Cd[sub 0.3]Se longitudinal-optical...
