We report the molecular beam epitaxial growth of InSb quantum dots (QD) inserted as sub-monolayers in an InAs matrix which exhibit intense mid-infrared photoluminescence up to room temperature. The InSb QD sheets were formed by briefly exposing the surface to an antimony flux (Sb-2) exploiting an As-Sb anion exchange reaction. Light emitting diodes were fabricated using 10 InSb QD sheets and were found to exhibit bright electroluminescence with a single peak at 3.8 mu m at room temperature. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
