We study single GaAs quantum dots with optical transitions that can be brought into resonance with the widely used D2 transitions of rubidium atoms. We achieve resonance by Zeeman or Stark shifting the quantum dot levels. We discuss an energy stabilization scheme based on the absorption of quantum dot photoluminescence in a rubidium vapor. This offers a scalable means to counteract slow spectral diffusion in quantum dots.

    We report the observation of the Kondo effect in a spin- 3/2 hole quantum dot formed near pinch-off in a GaAs quantum wire. We clearly observe two distinctive hallmarks of quantum dot Kondo physics. First, the zero-bias peak in the differential conductance splits an in-plane magnetic field and...

    The tight binding approximation is employed to study the Zeeman effect for the hole ground state in a quantum dot. A method is proposed for calculating the g factor for localized states in a quantum dot. This method can be used both for hole states and for electron states. Calculations made for...

    We have measured a large increase (by a factor of up to 50) in the room-temperature emission of InAs/GaAs self-assembled quantum dots subjected to a hydrogen-passivation treatment. Smaller enhancements were measured at low temperatures. We tentatively attribute the improved optical signal to...

    We studied a site-control technique for InAs quantum dots (QDs) on GaAs substrates using a combination of in situ electron-beam (EB) lithography and self-organized molecular-beam epitaxy. In small, shallow holes formed on prepatterned mesa structures by EB writing and Cl[sub 2] gas etching, QDs...

    Postgrowth rapid thermal annealing was used to modify the structural and optical properties of the self-assembled InAs quantum dots grown on GaAs substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. It is found that significant narrowing of the luminescence linewidth (from 78.9 to 20.5 meV) from the InAs dot...

    Self-organized InAs quantum dots were grown by molecular-beam epitaxy on the GaAs (&1macr;&1macr;&3macr;) B surface.
