Highly circularly polarized light is generated from highly uniform InAs/GaAs quantum dots. These quantum dots allowed us to observe the spin dynamics at each energy state selectively without disturbing the inhomogeneous broadening. Time-resolved spin-dependent photoluminescence measurements show that the spin polarization at the second excited state reaches a maximum of 45% at 10 K, and that the spin polarization is greater at higher-energy states. This large spin polarization is explained by the spin Pauli blocking effect.
