The properties of InSb quantum dots grown by metal organic vapour phase epitaxy are summarised as deduced from photoluminescence, magneto-photoluminescence, and far-infrared modulated photoluminescence experiments. A technique is described for shifting the emission of these dots to lower energy by coupling them with a narrow InAs quantum well, leading to the demonstration of electroluminescence at ∼ 2.3 μm.
