We report on the quantum-confined Stark effect for spatially indirect transitions in Stranski-Krastanov grown type-II Si∕Ge quantum dots. A linear blueshift of the spatially indirect transition is observed at increasing electric field in contrast to the commonly observed redshift for type-I transitions. A shift of the emission-peak position and different quenching rates of the photoluminescence for p-i-n and n-i-p diodes at increased electric field and temperature indicate a deeper notch potential for electrons above the dot than below due to a strain-induced asymmetry in the band alignment.
