Abstract

The extremely long dephasing time of excitons in strain-compensated quantum dots at telecommunications wavelengths was measured using a polarization-dependent four-wave mixing technique. The use of a 150-layer-stacked structure enabled them to measure a four-wave mixing signal with a high signal-to-noise ratio, in spite of the fact that a high-sensitive heterodyne detection was not used. The large anisotropy of the dephasing time indicates the dominance of the radiative recombination process on dephasing. By simultaneously measuring the radiative lifetime using a pump-probe technique, they could directly estimate pure dephasing with an accuracy of better than 0.1 μeV.
