Epitaxially grown self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) are promising candidates for an efficient single-photon generation. In order to maximize the number of photons extracted from the device, QDs are frequently embedded into photonic structures such as micro-cavities. Once the QD is positioned inside an optical cavity, the Purcell effect ensures that light is emitted predominantly into the cavity mode. In this contribution, we demonstrate results of emission tuning of QDs inserted in micro-cavities. A sample containing an InAs/GaAs QDs embedded in a planar cavity based on Bragg reflectors has been integrated onto the PMN-PT piezo crystal. Subsequently, micro-cavities have been fabricated by electron-beam lithography and reactive ion etching. The application of external stress produces linear shifts of QDs emission which could be tuned into the resonance with fundamental cavity mode and allow enhancement of QD emission due to the Purcell effect.
