InAs/GaAs quantum dots have been subjected to a lateral external electric field in low-temperature microphotoluminescence measurements. It is demonstrated that the dot PL signal could be increased several times depending on the magnitude of the external field and the strength of the internal (built-in) electric field, which could be altered by an additional infrared illumination of the sample. The observed effects are explained by a model that accounts for the essentially faster lateral transport of the photoexcited carriers achieved in an electric field. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
