    Radiative recombination is investigated in the authors' previously proposed d-doped superlattice, which can be grown from one of several well-known single-crystal semiconductors of the type InSb, InAs, or GaAs. The energy diagram of the superlattice consists of alternating trapezoidal n-type and...

    Photoluminescence (PL) spectra of InAs/GaAs heteroepitaxial structures with quantum dots (QDs) have been studied. The structures were grown by submonolayer migration-enhanced epitaxy on vicinal substrates with the amount of deposited InAs close to the critical value of 1.8 monolayer (ML). The...

    The influence of the size effect in photoluminescence on two-photon absorption in the course of reradiation in undoped graded-gap Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1 - x]As solid solutions was studied. It is shown that the efficiency of two-photon absorption increases as the extent of the crystal region under...
