Surface passivation and oxide encapsulation to improve optical properties of a single GaAs quantum dot close to the surface
Sprache des Titels:
Epitaxial GaAs quantum dots grown by droplet etching have recently shown excellent properties as sources of single photons as well as entangled photon pairs.
Integration in some nanophotonic structures requires surface-to-dot distances of less than 100 nm. This demands a surface passivation scheme, which could be useful
to lower the density of surface states. To address this issue, sulphur passivation with dielectric overlayer as an encapsulation is used for surface to QD distances of
?40 nm, which results in the partial recovery of emission linewidths to bulk values as well as in the increase of the photoluminescence intensity.
