The photoluminescence (PL) emission from InGaAs/GaAs quantum-well and quantum-dot (QD) structures are compared after controlled irradiation with 1.5 MeV proton fluxes. Results presented here show a significant enhancement in radiation tolerance with three-dimensional quantum confinement. Some additional radiation-induced changes in photocarrier recombination from QDs, which include a slight increase in PL emission with low and intermediate proton doses, are also examined.
