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.

Abstract

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.
