We have investigated the optical properties of multi-stacked GaN/AlGaN self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The QDs that emit visible light have a broad spectral range without incorporation of indium alloy because of the quantum-confined Stark effect. We found differences in the structural and optical properties between the layers of multi-stacked QDs. The carriers are more effectively transferred from the AlGaN barrier to the low energy side of the GaN QD emission than to the high energy side. We also observed long-lived carrier recombination dynamics for the visible range emission from QDs.

    The effect of biexcitons on the Stark effect in GaAs and CdS quantum dots (QDs) has been investigated theoretically using a time-dependent perturbation technique. Our results show that the redshift, which usually occurs in QD energy levels, changes to a blueshift when account is taken of...

    We studied the dependence of the photoluminescence emission energy of InGaAs/AlGaAs quantum dot (QD) structures grown by molecular beam epitaxy as a function of the Al and In content in barriers and QDs, respectively. We show that emissions are blue-shifted by increasing both the Al content in...

    To realize the desired zero-dimensional behavior of a quantum dot ensemble, the ability to fabricate quantum dots with a high packing density and a high degree of size, shape, and spacing uniformity is crucial.
