Project C3:
Coherent control in vertically and laterally coupled quantum dot systems

Summary

The project aims in its final stage at the coherent control of electronic excitations in tailored III-V quantum dot (QD) systems and the understanding of the underlying many-body physics. We will investigate the coupling of the electronic levels and the dephasing processes in dependence of the scaling properties i.e., of the number of coupled QDs and QD spacing. Single QD molecules will be investigated by micro-photoluminescence (PL), micro-PL excitation spectroscopy, photon correlation spectroscopy, and coherent control experiments. Within the scope of the project the epitaxial growth process of low-density vertically and laterally coupled QDs needs to be developed for emission wavelengths between 700 to 1000 nm. This includes the fabrication of lateral QD molecules, using a combination of molecular beam epitaxy and atomic layer precise in situ etching.
