Abstract
For memory structures based on optically induced charge in self-organized quantum dots, the concept of wavelength-domain multiplexing in the quantum dot ensemble is an essential prerequisite. The electric properties of quantum dots in various material systems as studied by time-resolved capacitance spectroscopy are summarized, and candidates suitable for future memory applications are discussed. By combining optical excitation and capacitance spectroscopy, direct evidence is obtained for energy-selective hole charge generation and storage in InAs/GaAs quantum dots. A clear dependence of the activation energy of the emitted holes on the energy of the excitation is observed.
