We report the formation of CdTe self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) on high-quality ZnTe epilayers grown on a GaSb substrate by molecular-beam epitaxy. Reflection high-energy electron diffraction and atomic force micro- scopy measurements clearly show the formation of CdTe QDs. Photoluminescence (PL) measurements on ZnTe-capped CdTe QD samples show a wide distribution of dot size. The temperature dependence of PL spectra indicates much stronger exciton localization in QDs than that in quantum wells.
