In this study, our recent research activities on nanophotonic devices with semiconductor quantum nanostructures are reviewed. We have developed a technique for nanofabricating of high-quality and high-density semiconductor quantum dots (QDs). On the basis of this core technology, we have studied next-generation nanophotonic devices fabricated using high-quality QDs, including (1) a high-performance QD laser for long-wavelength optical communications, (2) high-efficiency compound-type solar cell structures, and (3) single-QD devices for future applications related to quantum information. These devices are expected to be used in high-speed optical communication systems, high-performance renewable energy systems, and future high-security quantum computation and communication systems.
