Voltage-controlled photoluminescence (PL) switching is demonstrated for single site-controlled InAs quantum dots (QDs) embedded in Schottky-i-n diodes grown by molecular beam epitaxy on nanoimprint lithography patterned GaAs templates. The PL emission was quenched by applying a voltage over the diode structure due to the increased tunnelling rate of charge carriers out of the QDs.
