Summary: 
A quantum dot (QD) electro-absorption device was successfully developed with a highly stacked InAs/InGaAlAs QD structure. A 1.55-µm waveband electro-absorption effect and a quantum confined Stark effect of approximately 22 meV under the application of a 214-kV/cm reverse bias electric field are clearly observed in the developed QD device.
