In this work, we are dealing with the droplet epitaxially prepared quantum dots. This technology is not only an alternative way of the strain induced technique to prepare quantum dots, but it allows us to make various shaped nano structures from various material. The present paper deals not only with the so called conventional shaped quantum dot but also with the ring shaped dot, with the inverted dot and with dot molecules as well. Their thechnology, opto-electronical and the structural properties are also discussed.
Part of the book: Quantum Dots
The chapter describes a novel technology, called droplet epitaxy, in the view point of quantum-circuit realization. This technology is useful when quantum dots are to be produced, of different shape and size in various densities. There are self-assembling methods to achieve spatial ordering or spatial positioning. Out of some of the possible applications as an example, the register and cellular automata circuit will be described.
