Quantum dots were grown by molecular beam epitaxy on GaAs substrates using a cycled submonolayer InAs/GaAs deposition technique. Their structural and luminescence characteristics have been compared with conventional self-organized dots. The room-temperature luminescence spectra are characterized by a ground state transition at 1.3 μm and additional transitions corresponding to excited states. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopy indicates that no dislocations are formed if the total InAs thickness is less than 5-6 monolayers. Temperature dependence of the photoluminescence indicates that both types of quantum dots may have nonradiative defects, caused by segregation and related phenomena.
