Room temperature PR spectrum for an QD structure revealing the WL QW transitions at typically observed energies.
Wetting layer quantum well transition energies (for both heavy and light holes) in self-assembled QD structures vs the energy of the QD ground state transitions. The dotted line represents the mean value.
Calculated heavy hole and light hole related transition energies (solid lines) in a 1.6 ML thin rectangular QW as a function of the conduction band offset ratio. The dotted lines mark the mean energy values from Fig. 2; the dashed line shows the best agreement value.
WL QW transition energies calculated as a function of the In atoms diffusion length. Full squares mark the experimental energy. The insets show the In content profile for three diffusion lengths (0, 0.3, and 0.35) and the respective shapes of the conduction band well.
Liquid nitrogen temperature PR spectra for various In contents of QD structures for low content (low-strain) structures; (b) for various In contents in the vicinity of the WL transitions.
Energy level calculations for an QW vs well width and for a few band offset ratios (treated as a semifree parameter).
Liquid nitrogen temperature PR spectra for various In contents of QD structures for various In contents in the vicinity of the WL transitions.
