We describe the initial efforts to use molecular beam epitaxy to grow InAs quantum dots on GaAs via the Stranski-Krastanow transition. We then discuss the initial efforts to use these quantum dots to demonstrate quantum dot lasers. We discuss the developments in quantum dot lasers over the past 20 years and the future prospects for these lasers for scientific and commercial applications.
