Abstract

InAs QDs embedded in an AlGaAs matrix have been produced by MOVPE with a partial capping and annealing technique to achieve controllable QD energy levels that could be useful for solar cell applications. The resulted spool-shaped QDs are around 5 nm in height and have a log-normal diameter distribution, which is observed by TEM to range from 5 to 15 nm. Two photoluminescence peaks associated with QD emission are attributed to the ground and the first excited states transitions. The luminescence peak width is correlated with the distribution of QD diameters through the diameter dependent QD energy levels.
