Electric field induced blueshift of the e1-hh1 exciton transition in a GaAs1-xNx/GaAs (x<1%) stepped quantum well (2006)
Journal Article
Hill, G., Hopkinson, M., Steer, M. J., Gupta, R., Lim, A. C., & Haywood, S. K. (2006). Electric field induced blueshift of the e1-hh1 exciton transition in a GaAs1-xNx/GaAs (x<1%) stepped quantum well. Applied physics letters, 89(26), 261110. doi:10.1063/1.2424278

The authors present room temperature photoluminescence and photocurrent measurements on a three layer GaAsNGaAs Al0.35 Ga0.65 As (N≤1%) stepped quantum well. A blueshift in the ground state transition energy is observed with the application of an ele... Read More

Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots (2005)
Journal Article
Rybchenko, S., Itskevich, I., Skolnick, M. S., Cahill, J., Tartakovskii, A. I., Hill, G., & Hopkinson, M. (2005). Tuning of electronic coupling between self-assembled quantum dots. Applied physics letters, 87(3), 033104. doi:10.1063/1.1995953

Semiconductor self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs) normally have zero-dimensional properties, but become coupled and acquire higher-dimensional character if the distance between the dots is small. Using photoluminescence spectroscopy under high hydros... Read More

High pressure as a tool to tune electronic coupling in self-assembled quantum dot nanostructures (2004)
Journal Article
Itskevich, E., Hopkinson, M., Hill, G., Skolnick, M., Tartakovskii, A., Cahill, J., …Itskevich, I. (2004). High pressure as a tool to tune electronic coupling in self-assembled quantum dot nanostructures. physica status solidi (b), 241(14), 3257-3262. doi:10.1002/pssb.200405235

High pressure provides an efficient way of controlling the electronic properties of semiconductor nanostructures. We use pressure to tune electronic coupling in stacks of self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs). The coupling occurs as soon as the distanc... Read More
