Abstract

Structural and optical properties of InAlAs/GaAlAs quantum dots grown by molecular beam epitaxy are studied using transmission electron microscopy, temperature- and time resolvedphotoluminescence. The control of the recombination lifetime (50 ps – 1.25 ns), and of the dot density (5.10−8 – 2.1011 cm−3) strongly suggest that these material systems can find wide applications in opto-electronic devices as focusing non linear dispersive materials as well as fast saturable absorbers.
