Characterization of hydrogen passivated defects in strain-engineered semiconductor quantum dot structures. In: Journal of Applied Physics, vol. 100 (8) article n. 084313. AIP, 2006.
The effects of hydrogen incorporation on carrier relaxation and recombination efficiencies in a large series of InAs self-assembled quantum dot structures deposited on InGaAs lower confining layers with different thicknesses and compositions have been addressed. With increasing H dose we observe an improvement in the radiative efficiency. By comparing steady state and time resolved photoluminescence measurements, it is established that the H passivation does not enhance the relaxation and capture efficiencies, but instead directly improves the emission yield from carriers in the dots. We therefore conclude that the H-passivated defects are located nearby, or even inside, the dots.
