The aim of this study is to investigate spin coherence properties of quantum dots defined in InAs nanowires by multiple top-gates and high-k dielectrics. This way, accurate control over the local potential landscape inside the nanowire is achieved and the quantum dots are tuned to the few-electron regime. An external magnetic field applied perpendicular to the nanowire axis strongly affects the quantum dot energy levels. Hence, the electron g factor can be determined and two-electron states exhibit an avoided-crossing in dependence of the magnetic field. The resulting energy gap gives a measure for the spin relaxation length inside the InAs quantum dot, which is compared with results from weak antilocalization in phase-coherent transport measurements. Spin relaxation exhibits a strong dependence on external electric fields yielding a cross-over from weak antilocalization to weak localization. Also, it is substantially affected by the confinement.
