Paper Abstract

We describe a study of electro-absorption effects in high quality 1300nm InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) material grown by molecular beam epitaxy. The photocurrent spectra as a function of electric field is investigated and the quantum confined Stark shift of the QD states is compared to reports for various quantum well (QW) systems (GaAs/AlGaAs, InGaAs/GaAs, InGaAsP/InP). We show that the rate of shift of the QD absorption peak is smaller than that of the reported QW systems (~0.1 meV/kVcm-1 c.f. 0.15-0.2 meV/kVcm- 1) and that the QD ground-state absorption is comparatively insensitive to the applied electric field. We observe a strong QD absorption peak at all biases up to avalanche breakdown, which is not observed in previous reports for these QW systems.
