Study of the growth mechanisms of self assembled III-V nano dots grown by the droplet heteroepitaxy method
In recent years, epitaxial growth of self-assembled quantum dots offers a way to incorporate new properties in existing solid state devices. Although the droplet heteroepitaxy method is relatively complex it is quite relaxed with respect to the material combinations that can be used. This offers great flexibility in the systems that can be achieved. In our work we study the structure and composition of a number of quantum dot systems grown by the droplet heteroepitaxy method, emphasizing the insights that these experiments provide with respect to the growth process.
