Localization of electrons in dome-shaped GeSi/Si islands A. I. Yakimov, V. V. Kirienko, A. A. Bloshkin [et.al.]

P. 032104-1-032104-4Abstract: We report on intraband photocurrent spectroscopy of dome-shaped GeSi islands embedded in a Si matrix with n+-type bottom and top Si layers. An in-plane polarized photoresponse in the 85–160 meV energy region has been observed and ascribed to the optical excitation of electrons from states confined in the strained Si near the dome apexes to the continuum states of unstrained Si. The electron confinement is caused by a modification of the conduction band alignment induced by inhomogeneous tensile strain in Si around the buried GeSi quantum dots. Sensitivity of the device to the normal incidence radiation proves a zero-dimensional nature of confined electronic wave functions.
