Quantum dots contain only a few well-defined energy levels for electron and/or holes as a result of the confinement of charge in all three spatial dimensions. Here, we describe both the application of photoluminescence spectroscopy and transport measurements to the characterisation of quantum dots and the novel phenomena that they exhibit. These include the Coulomb blockade, single electron tunnelling and single photon detection. The impact of quantum dots on future electronics and directions for future research, such as in quantum computing and cryptography, are addressed.
