The paper by Smirnov et al. presents a theoretical model describing the temperature dependence of the photoluminescence spectrum of self-ordered quantum dot arrays. By applying the model to the photoluminescence behavior of InAs quantum dots grown on GaAs vicinal substrates they can distinguish between effects caused by different temperatureinduced mechanisms and obtain information about the physical and electronic structure of the quantum dot arrays.
