Photonics Spectra
Feb 2005
Artech.jpgThe 565-page resource Optics of Quantum Dots and Wires describes the status and potential of the technology. Chapters cover such areas as carrier relaxation in nanostructures, fabrication of stressor quantum dots, self-ordered quantum nanostructures, novel lateral semiconductor nanostructures by functional self-organized epitaxy, and high-resolution optical spectroscopy of single quantum dots in quantum wells. The book concludes with a discussion on how the dots and wires can be applied to next-generation semiconductor lasers and optical sources, and to single-photon sources and quantum coherent optoelectronics. Charts, diagrams, references and an index are provided. Garnett W. Bryant and Glenn S. Solomon, eds.; Artech House Inc., Norwood, Mass., 2005; $179.

quantum dots
Also known as QDs. Nanocrystals of semiconductor materials that fluoresce when excited by external light sources, primarily in narrow visible and near-infrared regions; they are commonly used as alternatives to organic dyes.
