Abstract

Images of semiconductor “dot-in-rods” and their small clusters are studied by measuring the second-order correlation function with a spatially resolving intensified CCD camera. This measurement allows one to distinguish between a single dot and a cluster and, to a certain extent, to estimate the number of dots in a cluster. A more advanced measurement is proposed, based on higher-order correlations, enabling more accurate determination of the number of dots in a small cluster. Nonclassical features of the light emitted by such a cluster are analyzed.
