A fabrication method for a matrix pattern of laterally separated silicon quantum rods was developed, consisting of a three-step recipe utilizing electron beam lithography (EBL), reactive ion etching (RIE), and oxidation. Photoluminescence (PL) measurements -images, spectra, and blinking-verified that the presented method results in a high number of luminescing single silicon quantum rods in well defined positions on the sample. These are suitable for single dot spectroscopy and repeatable measurements, even using different measurement methods and instruments.
