We have investigated carrier spin dynamics in self-assembled InAs/GaAs high-uniform quantum dots. The high-uniform quantum dots allowed us to observe the spin dynamics in the ground state and that in the second state separately, without the disturbance of the inhomogeneous broadening. Spin Pauli blocking due to which the spin polarization in the second state is greater than that in the ground state has been clearly observed by time-resolved spin-dependent photoluminescence measurements. The spin relaxation times in the ground state and the second state were measured to be 1 ns and 0.8 ns, respectively.
