ABSTRACT
The capture of an optical image in the plane of a semiconductor quantum well and the subsequent re-emission of this image in the form of a two-dimensional photon flux is demonstrated. Spatially resolved storage of photonic signals in a two-dimensional lateral potential landscape of the quantum well is employed to imprint optical images in the form of trapped photogenerated charges into the solid. The lateral two-dimensional potential modulation leads to very long storage times by a deliberate spatial separation of photogenerated electron–hole pairs. Once the potential modulation is lifted, the initial optical information is restored and the photographed image is released in a flash of light.

    We report on a significant decrease in the diode-ideality factor of GaInN/GaN multiple quantum well light-emitting diodes (LEDs), from 5.5 to 2.4, as Si-doping is applied to an increasing number of quantum barriers (QBs). The minimum ideality factor of 2.4 is obtained when all QBs are doped. It...
