Abstract

A detailed study of the degree of circular polarization and the angular dependence of the emission spectra of an array of InAs quantum dots embedded in GaAs photonic nanostructures with chiral symmetry in the absence of an external magnetic field is carried out. A strong angular dependence of the spectra and the degree of circular polarization of radiation from quantum dots, as well as a significant effect of the lattice period of the photonic crystal on the radiation characteristics, is observed. The dispersion of photonic modes near the (±3, 0) and (±2, ±2) Bragg resonances is investigated in detail. The experimentally observed polarization, spectral, and angular characteristics of the quantum-dot emission are explained in the framework of a theory describing radiative processes in chiral photonic nanostructures.
