We present a microscopic analysis of spatially resolved photoluminescence and photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy in semiconductor quantum structures. Such theoretical and numerical framework provides a general basis for the description of spectroscopic imaging in which the excitation and detection energies and spatial positions can all independently be scanned. The numerical results clarify the impact of the near-field optical setup on the obtained images and resolutions. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    We have studied photoluminescence (PL) spectrum and dynamics of amorphous silicon (a-Si) based quantum wells at low temperatures. In a-Si/SiO[sub 2] quantum-well samples with thin a-Si layers, the PL spectra appear in the visible spectral region. With a decrease of the a-Si well thickness, the...

    ZnGa2O4 samples doped with Mn, Yb, Sm, and Tb have been prepared by a ceramic processing technique, and their 20°C photoluminescence spectra were measured. The results demonstrate that the four dopants have a significant effect on the photoluminescence of ZnGa2O4. Doping with Mn and Yb allows...
