Abstract

We describe molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) growth conditions for self-assembled indium nanostructures, or islands, which allow for the tuning of the density and size of the indium nanostructures. How the plasmonic resonance of indium nanostructures is affected by the island density, size, distribution in sizes, and indium purity of the nanostructures is explored. These self-assembled nanostructures provide a platform for integration of resonant and non-resonant plasmonic structures within a few nm of quantum wells (QWs) or quantum dots (QDs) in a single process. A 4× increase in peak photoluminescence intensity is demonstrated for near-surface QDs resonantly coupled to indium nanostructures.
