Using photoluminescence and photoreflectance ranging from 8 to 300 K, this study investigates transition energies in InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) samples grown on (100) misoriented 7° towards (100) GaAs substrates using gas source molecular beam epitaxy with various group V/III flux ratios. Only the exciton transition appears in the photoluminescence spectra (PL) of all samples. Experimental results indicate that the decrease in the full width at half maximum (FWHM) of the PL peak with increasing temperature can be attributed to the effective suppression of non-predominant size QD emissions due to carrier tunneling between nearby dots. Signals from all relevant portions of the samples have been observed in the PR spectra. One to three transition energies in QDs, depending on the dot size, are observed in the PR spectra.
