We investigate double layer InAs/GaAs quantum dots grown in the Stransky-Krastanov mode by molecular beam epitaxy. The sample consists of two layers of InAs quantum dots separated by 10 nm thick GaAs layer, where the top quantum dot layer of an improved homogeneity is covered by an InGaAs cap. This configuration has allowed for the extension of the dots' emission to longer wavelengths. We probed the carrier transfer between the states confined in a double quantum well composed of InGaAs cap and the quantum dots wetting layer to the states in the quantum dots by means of photoluminescence excitation and photoreflectance spectroscopies. Efficient emission from quantum dots excited at the double quantum well ground state energy was observed. There is also presented a discussion on the carrier injection efficiency from the capping layer to the quantum dots.

We experimentally demonstrate fine tuning of the mode splitting of a photonic molecule based on a local perturbation of a photonic crystal waveguide and propose a scheme to achieve parity exchange of the ground state.

The measurement of optical gain utilising a segmented contact and integrated optical amplifier isreported. We show that in a direct comparison of methods, the use of the integrated amplifierallows the gain spectrum to be deduced over wider spectral ranges and to lower carrier densities, ascompared to the conventional segmented contact technique.

Daskalakis KS, Maier SA, Murray R, et al., 2014, Nonlinear interactions in an organic polariton condensate, Nature Materials, Vol: 13, Pages: 272-279, ISSN: 1476-1122
Under the right conditions, cavity polaritons form a macroscopic condensate in the ground state. The fascinating nonlinear behaviour of this condensate is largely dictated by the strength of polariton–polariton interactions. In inorganic semiconductors, these result principally from the Coulomb interaction between Wannier–Mott excitons. Such interactions are considerably weaker for the tightly bound Frenkel excitons characteristic of organic semiconductors and were notably absent in the first reported demonstration of organic polariton lasing. In this work, we demonstrate the realization of an organic polariton condensate, at room temperature, in a microcavity containing a thin film of 2,7-bis[9,9-di(4-methylphenyl)-fluoren-2-yl]-9,9-di(4-methylphenyl)fluorene. On reaching threshold, we observe the spontaneous formation of a linearly polarized condensate, which exhibits a superlinear power dependence, long-range order and a power-dependent blueshift: a clear signature of Frenkel polariton interactions.

We demonstrate an organic polariton condensate that exhibits nonlinear interactions at room-temperature. Upon reaching threshold, we observe a superlinear power dependence, a power-dependent blueshift and the emergence of long-range spatial coherence resulting from polariton interactions. © 2014 OSA.

The analysis of molecular-beam epitaxy (MBE) grown bilayer quantum dot (QD) laser material is reported here.Specifically, gain characteristics of 5× ‘bilayer’ QDs with GaAs caps and 5× ‘single’ QD layers with InGaAs caps werestudied experimentally. A transition of lasing from the ground state to lasing via the first excited state, and subsequently thesecond excited state is observed with increasing threshold gain for both the laser structures. A 50% increase in saturatedmodal gain is observed for bilayer laser as compared to single-layer samples. Further analysis of the bilayer sample using themulti-section technique allows the gain and absorption spectrum to be obtained.

Usman M, Heck S, Clarke E, et al., 2011, Experimental and theoretical study of polarization-dependent optical transitions in InAs quantum dots at telecommunication-wavelengths (1300-1500 nm), Journal of Applied Physics, Vol: 109, ISSN: 1089-7550
The design of some optical devices, such as semiconductor optical amplifiers for telecommunicationapplications, requires polarization-insensitive optical emission at long wavelengths (1300–1550 nm).Self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) typically exhibit ground state optical emissions atwavelengths shorter than 1300 nm with highly polarization-sensitive characteristics, although this canbe modified by the use of low growth rates, the incorporation of strain-reducing capping layers, or thegrowth of closely-stacked QD layers. Exploiting the strain interactions between closely stacked QDlayers also affords greater freedom in the choice of growth conditions for the upper layers, so that botha significant extension in their emission wavelength and an improved polarization response can beachieved due to modification of the QD size, strain, and composition. In this paper, we investigate thepolarization behavior of single and stacked QD layers using room temperature sub-lasing-thresholdelectroluminescence and photovoltage measurements, as well as atomistic modeling with the NEMO3-D simulator. A reduction is observed in the ratio of the transverse electric (TE) to transversemagnetic (TM) optical mode response for a GaAs-capped QD stack as compared to a single QD layer,but when the second layer of the two-layer stack is InGaAs-capped, an increase in the TE/TM ratio isobserved, in contrast to recent reports for single QD layers.

Majid MA, Childs DTD, Chen S, et al., 2010, Gain spectra analysis of bilayer quantum dot lasers beyond 1.3μm
In this paper we report on the analysis of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) grown GaAs and InGaAs capping bilayer QD laser material via a number of characterization techniques. The InGaAs capped bilayer QD lasers extends the room temperature lasing wavelength to 1.45μm. The further analysis of the materials using the multisection technique allows the gain and absorption spectrum to be obtained under various CW and pulsed bias conditions and at a range of currents and temperatures. The spectral measurement of gain demonstrates that net modal gain is achieved beyond 1.5μm at room temperature. Analysis of the temperature and current density dependence of gain allows insight into the increase in threshold current around room temperature for a GaAs capped bilayer laser.
