Abstract

A robust algorithm based on cross-correlations and lucky imaging reliably allows the correction of spectrally diffused datasets. This step enables the resolution-limited analysis of the emission fine structure of semiconductor quantum dots (QDs). Bright and dark excitonic transitions are resolved with optimum signal-to-noise ratio, allowing for a precise determination of the angular direction of linear polarization of the different lines. The angular phases between polarization directions are intrinsically connected to the orientations of emission dipoles. This fact provides a tool for accurate numerical computation of the azimuth ϕ and polar angle θ of the QD with respect to the optical axis. Our in-situ characterization of QD fine structure and orientation represents a precise and non-invasive method without requiring specialized equipment beyond a standard luminescence setup. In this way, important information is provided whenever efficient coupling of a quantum emitter to the electromagnetic field is targeted by various nano- and micro-optic strategies.
