We fabricated InAs self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) on strained layer using molecular beam epitaxy. The strained layer consisted of InAs/GaAs superlattice(SL) and GaAs barrier layer on (001) GaAs substrate. Through controlling thickness of the strained layer, we formed two-dimensional alignments of QDs on misfit dislocation arrays along <110> directions made by strained layer. The increase of the strained layer thickness resulted in a stronger alignment of QDs, which were observed by atomic force microscopy studies. The aligned QDs were confirmed to confine carriers well and have different size distributions by photoluminescence measurement.
