Abstract

We apply the elastic energy release rate (EERR) to identify the favored location ofquantum dot (QD) formation in the presense of a laterally or vertically neighboring grown QD on a linear anisotropic elastic substrate. The EERR is defined as the relaxation energy per unit volume of QD growth. Numerical reuslts for InAs QDs on a GaAs (001) substrate are reported. It is shown that the presence of a laterally neighboring QD inhibits the driving force for the formation of a new QD. In contrast, the presence of buried (vertically) neighboring QD enhances it for the formation of a new QD at its favorable location.
