Abstract

Temperature-dependent photoluminescence (PL) measurements were carried out ZnSe/ZnS quantum dots (QDs) grown with post-growth interruption under a dimethylzinc (DMZn) flow. The PL spectra showed sigmoidal peak shifts and V-shaped full width at half maximum (FWHM) variations with increasing temperature, which strongly suggest that the QD structure of ZnSe/ZnS is quite similar to that of other material systems grown in the Stranski-Krastanov mode. Apparent differences are revealed as a consequence of DMZn treatment: (i) the PL spectra of ZnSe/ZnS QDs showed peaks at higher energies and persisted up to 300 K, and(ii) the minimum points of the V-shaped FWHM appear at a higher temperature compared to H2-purged ZnSe/ZnS QDs. Experimental results demonstrate the enhancement of localization energy.
