Abstract

We present the observation and analysis of long-lived exciton in individual InAs quantum dots (QDs). The general model considering the interplay between dark and bright states reveals the two key factors responsible for the long decay time: the shortened spin-flip time at elevated temperature and the imbalanced initial populations between the dark and bright states. The later one plays a key role in the unusual phenomena and leads to the possibility of spin-dependent relaxation process in QDs.
