Abstract

The dependence of radiative recombination rate and efficiency on GaN quantum-dot (QD) size and temperature is studied by time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy. The emission is dominated by radiative recombination at low temperatures (<125 K) and exhibits high PL efficiency at room temperature. The radiative lifetime and the relative quantum efficiency decrease with the decreasing QD size.
