Stress-Engineered Quantum Dots: Nature’s Way

  • Chapter

Part of the NanoScience and Technology book series (NANO)

Abstract

Serendipity and scientific endeavor have been comrades even before Horace Walpole coined the word in The Three Princes of Serendip, the Sanskrit-derived name for the modern-day island nation of Sri Lanka. It is no surprise then that what we today dub as self-assembled quantum dots, the dominant theme of this dedicatory volume, also originate in the chance discovery of the existence of coherent (i.e., defect-free) three-dimensional (3D) islands in strained semiconductor heteroepitaxy [1,2].
