Self-organized formation and XSTM characterization of GaSb/GaAs quantum rings — •Andrea Lenz — Institut für Festkörperphysik, Technische Universität Berlin, Hardenbergstraße 36, 10623 Berlin, Germany

In the GaSb/GaAs material system, quantum rings (QRs) can occur already after the material deposition on GaAs(001), sometimes even without capping. Upon capping almost all quantum dots are transformed into QRs [1].

This presentation gives an overview of the structural parameters and the formation process of the GaSb/GaAs QRs using cross-sectional scanning tunneling microscopy (XSTM). Furthermore, information on the electronic structure of the QRs is shown, which is gained using scanning tunneling spectroscopy mode (XSTS). XSTS reveals the type-II alignment for GaSb/GaAs QRs [2], which makes them very promising for charge storage devices and in photovoltaics. Furthermore, the GaSb/GaAs system exhibits a strong Aharonov-Bohm effect since the central opening of the QRs is much more pronounced as compared with other material systems, like e.g. the InGaAs/GaP system, for which QRs have been observed quite recently [3].

This work was supported by the EC through the SANDiE NoE and by projects Da 408/13 and Sfb 787 of the DFG.
