The influence of As atoms on the morphologies of GaSb quantum dots (QDs) is investigated. Without any special treatment, GaSb quantum rings (QRs) are observed in the embedded GaSb layer even when the uncapped layer reveals QD like morphologies. With intentional As supply after the uncapped GaSb QD deposition, a QD to QR transition is observed. The phenomenon suggests that insufficient Sb atoms on the GaSb QDs would lead to the QD to QR transition as in the case of embedded GaSb layers. With extended Sb soaking time following GaSb deposition, QD structures could be well maintained for the embedded GaSb layers. A light-emitting diode operated at room temperature is fabricated based on the GaSb/GaAs QD structure. Identical peak positions in photoluminescence and electroluminescence (EL) spectra of the device show that type-II GaSb QDs are responsible for the observed EL.
