The electron g factors of coupled InAs/GaAs quantum dots under external magnetic and electric fields are investigated by using the eight-band k•p model. The resonant coupling between the two dots remains under electric fields below 8.2 mV/nm, and is broken above the critical field due to the quantum Stark effect. By applying electric fields, a sign reverse of g factors is observed, and an electric field tunable zero g factor is found in the quantum dot molecules. Spin-orbit interactions nicely explain the transition mechanism of g factors under external electric fields.

    We propose a pure-spin-current thermal generator based on a double quantum dot device. When an external magnetic field is applied on the quantum dots, a pure spin current induced by the thermal bias emerges. This is ascribed to a mirror symmetry configuration of spin-up and spin-down electron...

    We report on reversible spectral shifts in the emission spectra of self-organized CdSe single quantum dots on a time scale of seconds. Energy shifts of up to 3.5 meV have been observed and can be attributed to the Stark effect caused by fluctuating local electric fields. Most surprisingly, the...
