    This study explores the effects of both Oxygen and temperature on the carrier dynamics of isoelectronic ZnSe1-xOx (x=0.027 and 0.053) semiconductors using photoluminescence (PL) and time-resolved PL spectroscopy. We find that the Kohlrausch law is highly consistent with the complex decay traces...

    The time-resolved response of an optically excited vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser is measured for quadratically chirped pump pulses. The experimental results are compared with simulations based on microscopic calculations and qualitatively good agreement is obtained. The theoretical...
