Discovered recently, tensile-strained quantum dots are optically active, defect-free nanostructures. Large tensile strains allow us to tailor band structures for applications from tunable infrared emitters to entangled photon sources. I will discuss the history, current state-of-the-art, and future directions of this rapidly expanding research field.
