Abstract We investigate the recombination dynamics of positively charged and neutral biexcitons and excitons in a single InAs/GaAs quantum dot (QD) within a two-dimensional (2D) photonic bandgap (PBG). The 2D PBG makes the exciton lifetime four times longer and enhances photon-extraction efficiency compared to those without the PBG. Photon cross-correlation measurements demonstrate the cascade emissions of both charged and neutral biexcitons–excitons from the same QD. In the charged case, a hole in the p-shell relaxes into the s-shell between the cascade, and the corresponding transition is confirmed based on the spin configuration. The long exciton lifetime with the PBG helps us to reveal the spin dynamics that did not clearly appear in intrinsic QDs.
