Integration of multiple site-controlled pyramidal quantum dot systems with photonic-crystal membrane cavities
We describe the fabrication, epitaxial growth and photoluminescence (PL) spectra of systems of site-controlled pyramidal quantum dots (QDs) integrated with photonic crystal (PhC) membrane cavities. The spectra of the individual QDs are characterized by scanning micro-PL spectroscopy, and the cavity modes are identified by polarization-resolved PL measurements and modeling. Weak coupling of systems incorporating up to four identifiable QDs with single modes of the PhC cavities is demonstrated. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
