Özet

The concept of a memory device based on self-organized quantum dots (QDs) is presented, enabling extremely fast write times, limited only by the charge carrier relaxation time being in the picosecond range. For a first device structure with embedded InAs/GaAs QDs, a write time of 6 ns is demonstrated. A similar structure containing GaSb/GaAs QDs shows a write time of 14 ns. These write times are independent of the localization energy (e.g., storage time) of the charge carriers and at the moment are limited only by the experimental setup and the parasitic cutoff frequency of the RC low pass of the device.

For a first device structure with embeddedInAs/GaAs QDs, a write time of 6 ns is demonstrated. A similar structure containingGaSb/GaAs QDs shows a write time of 14 ns. These write times are independent of the localization energy (e.g., storage time) of the charge carriers and at the moment are limited only by the experimental setup and the parasitic cutoff frequency of the RC low pass of the device.
