We study photoluminescence properties of CdTe and CdMnTe quantum dots embedded in ZnTe nanowires. The nanowires were grown by molecular beam epitaxy, applying the vapor-liquid-solid growth mechanism. Linear polarization anisotropy measurements allow us to assess that the excitonic transitions originate from a single nanowire. We identify the optical transitions by comparing observed spectroscopic shifts with the universal emission pattern from the epitaxial CdTe dots. We support this identification by analyzing the photoluminescence intensity dependence on excitation power.
