We calculate phonon-assisted relaxation rates in a self-assembled quantum dot molecule. The calculation is based on wave functions obtained within an envelope function approach, including strain effects. The single-phonon relaxation is shown to be efficient for separations between the dots around 10 nm when, in addition, the dots are brought close to resonance.
