In the present work we are introducing heterogeneously coupled InAs stranski-krastanov and submonolayer quantum dot as an active material for quantum dot based infrared photodetector. Initially, we have optimized the basic SK on SML heterostructure. The thickness of the GaAs barrier layer is varied from 2.5 to 7.5 nm to tune the vertical coupling between seed SML and top SK QDs. PL and PLE response confirms the carrier tunneling between these heterogeneous QDs. The vertical alignment of SML and SK QDs is shown in Cross sectional TEM images. The sample with 7.5 nm barrier layer is incorporated into a N-I-N based quantum dot infrared photodetector, which shows broader spectral response than standard SK QD based IR detectors.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
