We propose a modified droplet epitaxy method for fabricating self-organized GaAs/AlGaAs quantum dots (QDs) with a high As flux irradiation and a low substrate temperature. By our novel method, GaAs QDs were successfully formed, retaining their pyramidal shape, original base size and density of droplets, and preventing layer-by-layer growth. Quantum size effects of the QDs were distinctly observed by photoluminescence measurements. It was confirmed that this new modified droplet epitaxy method is promising for fabricating a high-quality GaAs/AlGaAs QD system.
