Tuning growth of nanostructures can provide additional routes to engineer their characteristics. In this work, the authors report on a combined growth of GaSb/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) and growth of GaAs on (001) Ge substrate. Surface decorated with GaAs anti-phase domain is the initial template to investigate the growth-rate effects on the growth of self-assembled GaSb QDs. By varying the GaSb growth rates, QD ensembles with different morphologies are formed. Perpendicular alignment of elongated GaSb QDs is observed. Cross-sectional transmission electron microscopic images show a substantial reduction of lateral QD size when it is buried in GaAs matrix. Raman scattering as well as power-dependent photoluminescence spectroscopies are performed to reveal the optical properties of the nanostructures. Type-II band alignment characteristic is confirmed.
