A microphotoluminescence study of single InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) in the presence of an applied external magnetic field is presented. Attention is focused on the redistribution between the spectral lines of a single QD observed at increasing magnetic field parallel to the growth direction (Faraday geometry). The redistribution effect is explained by considering the electron drift velocity in the QD plane that affects the probability for capture into the QD. In contrast, no redistribution is observed when applying the magnetic field perpendicular to the growth direction (Voigt geometry).
