We report voltage dependent photoluminescence experiments on single indium arsenide phosphide (InAsP) quantum dots embedded in vertical surround-gated indium phosphide (InP) nanowires. We show that by tuning the gate voltage, we can access different quantum dot charge states. We study the anisotropic exchange splitting by polarization analysis, and identify the neutral and singly charged exciton. These results are important for spin addressability in a charge tunable nanowire quantum dot.

    We demonstrate the formation of InAs quantum dots (QDs) on InAlAs/InP(111)A by means of droplet epitaxy. The C3μ symmetry of the (111)A substrate enabled us to realize highly symmetric QDs that are free from lateral elongations. The QDs exhibit a disk-like truncated shape with an atomically...

    InAs/InGaAs/InP quantum dots (QDs) emitting at ∼2 μm for midinfrared laser applications are studied using the complementary spectroscopic techniques of photoluminescence (PL), photoreflectance (PR), and surface photovoltage spectroscopy (SPS). We use a procedure that ensures that the...

    The photoluminescence (PL) spectra of exciton complexes in quantum dots (QDs) are of primary importance to understand their optical properties, which are well understood in InAs/GaAs QDs both theoretically and experimentally. However the knowledge can not be directly applied to InAs/InP QDs. In...

    A novel concept for creating self-doping quantum wires and quantum dot arrays based upon the InAs-GaSb material system is proposed. The unusual type II, broken-gap band line-up in this system allows charge transfer across the InAs-GaSb interfaces. We employ a recently developed coupled band...

    A combined InAlAs and GaAs strained buffer layer was presented to tailor the structural and optical properties of 1.3-µm InAs/GaAs quantum dots. This growth technique exhibits an increment of InAs quantum-dot density from 1.6 × 10[sup 10] to 2.8 × 10[sup 10] cm[sup -2] and an...
