We report on the observation of biexciton luminescence from single isoelectronic traps formed by nitrogen-nitrogen pairs in nitrogen δ-doped GaAs. The biexciton luminescence intensity showed a quadratic dependence on the excitation power while the exciton luminescence intensity increased linearly with increasing excitation power. The biexciton binding energy was found to be 8 meV, which is considerably larger than that reported for single InAs quantum dots in GaAs. We have also found that both the biexciton and exciton emission lines show completely unpolarized and no fine-structure splitting. This is suitable for the application to polarization-entangled photon pairs.
