Apparently, there are still a lot of challenges to be overcome before manufacturing becomes viable. According to Robert Chau, Director of transistor research and nanotechnology at INTEL Corporation, there are following four major challenges (CSIC 2005 Tech. Digest):(1) Worldwide, many researchers are fascinated from the rich physics of semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) and their high potential for applications in photonics and quantum information technology. QDs are nanometer-sized three-dimensional structures which
