Abstract

We have performed detailed photoluminescence (PL) and absorption spectroscopy on the same single self-assembled quantum dot in a charge-tunable device. The transition from neutral to charged exciton in the PL occurs at a more negative voltage than the corresponding transition in absorption. We have developed a model of the Coulomb blockade to account for this observation. At large negative bias, the absorption broadens as a result of electron and hole tunneling. We observe resonant features in this regime whenever the quantum dot hole level is resonant with two-dimensional hole states located at the capping layer-blocking barrier interface in our structure. © 2005 The American Physical Society.
