Tuning eigenstate-energies of InGaAs Quantum-Dots using lateral electric fields W. Prestel, H. Krenner, J. J. Finley St. Petersburg – JASS 2004

2
Outline Introduction –Growth of self-assembled Quantum Dots (SAQDs) –electric fields on QDs Work in progress: single QDs in lateral electric fields Benefit of lateral electric fields –structural information about QDs –Implementation of CNOT Gate

3
Self-Assembly of Quantum Dots Stranski-Krastanov Frank-van der Merwe Volmer-Weber used for usual heterostructures: unstrained material systems i.e. GaAs/AlAs similar to rain drops on window strained material systems i.e. In(Ga)As/GaAs particular growth conditions i.e. temperature, In content, growth rate formation of pseudomorpic layer: Wetting Layer (WL) growth of islands: strain relaxes in islands
