It is shown that it is possible to significantly modify optical spectra of Bragg multiple-quantum-well structures by introducing wells with different exciton energies. The reflection spectrum of the resulting structures is characterized by high contrast and tuning possibilities. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    We present a study of the bottom interface (GaAs on AlAs) in GaAs/AlAs single quantum wells using reflection high-energy electron diffraction, luminescence, and luminescence excitation spectroscopy. The results indicate that it is possible to grow GaAs/AlAs quantum wells with two truly smooth...

    The optical reflectance spectra of resonant Bragg quantum-well structures are studied theoretically. The existence of two special frequencies in the spectra at which the reflectance depends only weakly on the number of quantum wells in the structure is explained analytically. The effect of...

    A theoretical model has been developed to describe the behavior of exciton polaritons in a wide quantum well for structures with the zinc blende symmetry in a transverse magnetic field (the Voigt geometry). The model takes into account the mixing of the 1 s-1 s and 1 s-2 p states of heavy...

    The effect of exciton-polariton resonance on the optical properties of periodic heterostructures with double InGaN quantum wells in a GaN matrix has been studied. It has been found that the light reflection is amplified at the frequency corresponding to the exciton energy when it coincides with...

    Photoluminescence spectra of interwell excitons in double GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells (n-i-n structures) have been investigated (an interwell exciton in these systems is an electron-hole pair spatially separated by a narrow AlAs barrier).

    Screening of excitonic states by a system of 2D electrons (or holes) in GaAs/AlGaAs single quantum wells is studied. With increasing concentration of 2D charge carriers, a threshold-type disappearance of excitonic states is observed in both luminescence and reflectance spectra. The higher the...

    We report the observation of interband exciton transitions in InSb/Al[sub x]In[sub 1-x]Sb multi-quantum-well samples. The exciton peaks are identified with the use of a simple quantum well model. The strain present in the InSb wells alters the spectrum significantly from that for unstrained...
