A semiconductor quantum dot (QD) can generate highly indistinguishable single photons at a high rate. For application in quantum communication and integration in hybrid systems, control of the QD optical properties is essential. Understanding the connection between the optical properties of a QD and the growth process is therefore important. Here, we show for GaAs QDs, grown by infilling droplet-etched nanoholes, that the emission wavelength, the neutral-to-charged exciton splitting, and the…

Self-assembled quantum dots with tunable thickness of the wetting layer: Role of vertical confinement on interlevel spacing
Epitaxial self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) are commonly obtained by the Stranski-Krastanow (SK) growth mode, in which QDs form on top of a thin two-dimensional (2D) wetting layer (WL). In SK QDs,

The method drastically improves the yield of entanglement-ready photon sources near the emission wavelength of interest, which can be as high as 95% due to the low values of fine structure splitting and radiative lifetime, together with the reduced exciton dephasing offered by the choice of GaAs/AlGaAs materials.
