Abstract

Misfit dislocations were used to modify the surface morphology and to attain spatial ordering of quantum dots (QDs) by molecular beam epitaxy. Effects of anneal time and temperature on strain-relaxed In xGa 1-xAs/GaAs layers and subsequent spatial ordering of InAs QDs were investigated. Photoluminescence (PL) and time-resolved PL was used to study the effects of increased QD positional ordering, increased QD uniformity, and their proximity to dislocation arrays on their optical properties. Narrower inhomogeneous PL broadening from the QDs ordered on dislocation arrays were observed, and differences in PL dynamics were found.
