A systematic study of the emission spectra of single InAsP nanowire quantum dots in position-controlled InP photonic nanowire waveguides is presented. Using excitation power-dependent photoluminescence and correlation measurements, we distinguish between the different excitonic complexes responsible for s-shell emission. From measurements of over 40 nominally identical devices, we obtain a standard deviation of ∼5 meV in the emission energy of excitons, biexcitons, and charged exciton photons. The mean biexciton binding energy was 1.9 meV with a standard deviation of ∼0.8 meV. The experimental spectra are understood using atomistic multi-million atom theory of neutral and charged multi-exciton complexes implemented in the design tool QNANO.
