Dynamical behaviors of the exciton and biexciton luminescence at the wavelength of 1.18 μm from an InAs/GaAs single quantum dot are studied at 4.3 K. The rate equation analysis on the luminescence decays shows that the biexciton lifetime is longer than the exciton lifetime. The estimated lifetimes reflect molecular nature of the biexciton in the single quantum dot. Single photon sources working at the communication wavelength are quite desired for the practical applications of quantum… CONTINUE READING

In this presentation , we report on the time - dependence of the luminescence peaks attributed to the exciton and biexciton in an InAs / GaAs single quantum dot at the wavelength of 1.18 μm by using time - correlated photon counting technique .
