We report on the observation of amplified spontaneous emission and random lasing in self-organized crystalline para-sexiphenyl nanofibers. Using subpicosecond excitation, a lasing threshold is observed on the 0–1 emission band near 425 nm at excitation fluences as low as 0.5 μJ/cm2 (6×1016 cm-3 equivalent density), near the onset of density-dependent recombination processes. The dependence of the nonlinear emission spectrum on both the pump intensity and position of the excitation area are attributed to the interplay between random lasing and amplified spontaneous emission occurring along the nanofibers. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    We have studied the exciton localization dynamics in InxGa1-xN epitaxial films with different In compositions (x=0.02, 0.05, and 0.09) by means of optical Kerr-gate time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectral measurements. By changing excitation wavelength of 150 fs laser pulses, InxGa1-xN...

    The electroluminescence spectra of 6H-SiC p-n structures obtained by sublimation epitaxy have been investigated. It has been found that the intensity of the excitonic band increases rapidly with increasing direct current density, and that this band dominates the emission spectrum of the diode at...

    The emission spectrum of high quality ZnO epilayers is studied from room temperature up to 550 K. At room temperature and low excitation power a single emission peak is observed which may be identified with the free exciton from its peak energy and dependence on temperature. However, when...

    The excitonic photoluminescence spectra of GaAs epitaxial layers are studied.
