Semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) attract extensive interest for emerging applications such as quantum computing, quantum encryption and energy harvesting. However, epitaxial semiconductor QDs are covalently/ionically registered to the lattice of substrate, with their properties susceptible to two-dimensional wetting layers and substrate dislocations, which severely reduces the luminescence quantum efficiency.
Funding: $30K (2023)
Goal: Determine if the van der Waals quantum dots, which are weakly bonded with the epitaxial substrate, can be used to achieved high internal quantum efficiency.
