We establish rate equations to describe Auger carrier capture kinetics in quantum dot structures, calculate Auger capture coefficients for self-assembled quantum dots, and analyze Auger capture kinetics using these equations. We show that Auger capture times can be of the order of 1-100 ps depending on barrier carrier and dot densities. Auger capture rates depend strongly on dot diameters and are greatest at dot diameters of about 10-20 nm. (C) 1998 American Institute of Physics.
