Abstract

original image

We integrate resonant-cavity light-emitting diodes containing quantum dots onto substrates with giant piezoelectric response. Via strain, the energy of the photons emitted by the diode can be precisely controlled during electrical injection over a spectral range larger than 20 meV. Simultaneously, the exciton fine-structure-splitting and the biexciton binding energy can be tuned to the values required for entangled photon generation.
