    Photoluminescence in ZnSe/GaAs/Al0.4Ga0.6As single quantum well heterostructures is reported for the first time. These structures are grown by migration-enhanced epitaxy, resulting in flat and abrupt ZnSe/GaAs heterointerfaces. The quantum size effect is clearly observed. Photoluminescence...

    Anisotropic property of type-II GaAs/GaAsSb heterostructures was studied by photoluminescence (PL) and photoconductivity (PC). It was found that the PL and PC spectra exhibit a strong in-plane polarization with respect to 〈011〉 axis with polarization degrees up to 40%. We showed...

    We report on studies of optically pumped laser action in (Zn,Cd)Se/ZnSe multiple quantum well structures prepared by molecular beam epitaxy on lattice-matched bulk (Ga,In)As substrates. Room-temperature lasing under pulsed excitation with threshold pump intensity at I≊500 kW/cm2 has been...

    Using a two-dimensional geometrical model and fractional dimension approach, it is found analytically that the ratio of the binding energy of a biexciton to that of an exciton is 0.228 in quantum wells and it is independent of the quantum-well width. This agrees very well with the results in...

    Single bright-spot, bow-tie-shaped defects in a ZnSe heterostructure are spectroscopically imaged with 200 nm spatial resolution at a sample temperature of 20 K. The local thickness variations in the single ZnSe quantum-well lead to a lateral double-well potential resulting in a shift and...

    The structures grown by molecular-beam epitaxy with In[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As quantum wells (QWs) in GaAs were studied by X-ray diffractometry and low-temperature photoluminescence techniques. The inhomogeneity of the QW composition along the growth direction was established. Energy positions of...

    AlGaAs layers with a featureless specular surface morphology were grown successfully on an exactly (111)B oriented GaAs substrate by migration-enhanced epitaxy (MEE) even at growth temperatures below 500 °C. We have also observed reflection high-energy electron diffraction (RHEED) intensity...
