The semiconductor device industry is constantly challenged by the demands of miniaturization. Therefore, the use of nanomaterials, such as quantum dots (QDs), is expected. At these scales, quantum effects are anticipated under industrial working conditions. Here, we present a simple fabrication method for integrating colloidal coupled QDs as components in a vertical device. Characterization of the fundamental properties of QDs as an ensemble of isolated particles and as layered QD hybrid structures is demonstrated. For the case of layered QD hybrid structures, coupling between dots is on average stronger with typical energy band gaps reduced by more than 200 meV. The shown device offers a straightforward method to measure and establish a strong coupling transport system under ambient conditions.
