We study the structure, optical and magnetic characteristics of self-assembled (In,Cr)As diluted magnetic semiconductor quantum dots as a function of the As4 flux. Increasing the surface energy by increasing the As4 pressure leads to a smaller number of larger dots for a higher As4 flux. The remanent magnetization measured at 5 K also increases with increasing As4 flux, which is attributed to the enhancement of the effective Cr content due to the As4-rich condition. We explore the possibility of tailoring magnetism by controlling the As4/In flux ratio without changing the Cr concentration. Furthermore, extremely low-density QDs have also been successfully grown.
