Germanium Self-Assembled Quantum Dots in Silicon for Nano- and Optoelectronics
Abstract:The scope of this article is to review the formation mechanisms, variety of electronic and optical phenomena, as well as possible device-oriented applications, in Ge/Si self-assembled quantum dots that have been synthesized by molecular-beam heteroepitaxy. A difference of this review from the other existing works on physics of Ge/Si nanostructures is that we will focus on the fundamental aspects and device applications of the dots whose size is extremely small (∼10 nm) and the electronic states resemble certainly those of an atom even at room temperature.
