20-K peak energy position Ei, relative intensity Ii, and FWHM of cQDs and sQDs ensembles of types I, II, and III chirped QDM bilayers extracted from Figure 4a,b,c, respectively. The ideality factor ηi varies linearly with temperature from the lower limit value at 20 K to the upper limit value at 300 K. Subscripts 1 and 2 represent the lower and upper QDM layers, respectively. Ei's temperature dependency follows Varshni's equation unless marked by an asterisk where it instead follows the sigmoidal behavior. FWHM is assumed constant unless marked by an asterisk where it follows the anomalous temperature behavior. The FWHM is related to the standard deviation of the Gaussian distribution or the broadening parameter Γ through the relationship: FWHM (meV) = 1,665.11 × Γ.
