Self-organized InAs quantum dots (QDs), by the Stranski-Krastanow mode, have been grown by using low-pressure metalorganic chemical vapor deposition on V-groove GaAs substrates. By adjusting the flow rate of AsH 3 during the growth of InAs QDs, a one dimensional InAs QD array was successfully formed along the [01̄1] direction only at the bottom of V-grooves. No QDs were observed on the sidewalls and the surface of the mesa top. The InAs QDs took on an oval shape. They were spatially well-isolated along the [Oil] direction with a line density of 3 × 10 3 cm -1. These low-density InAs QDs are expected to be used in areas of quantum information and quantum computing.
