    The exciton properties of Si/Si1-xGex quantum wells (QWs) are investigated within a variational approach, taking into account interface effects for two possibilities of the band alignment, type I and type II. For the latter, two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) variational wave...

    Free exciton (FX) and bound exciton (BX) in Al0.5Ga0.5N/Al0.35Ga0.65N multiple quantum wells (MQWs) with different Si-doping levels in the well layers are investigated by photoluminescence (PL) spectra. Low temperature (10 K) PL spectra identify a large binding energy of 87.4 meV for the BX in...

    In this study, we have investigated an exciton confined in a single quantum well. For the first time, we have compared the different methods of approximating the effective two dimensional Coulomb potentials which had been previously reported in the literatures. The effect of different previously...

    We study the effects of exciton-longitudinal optical phonon interaction on the exciton binding energies in ZnS/MgxBeyZn1-x-yS single quantum wells. The heavy- and light-hole exciton binding energies increase to the exciton-logitudinal optical phonon interaction. The increase in the maximum...

    A change in the geometry and size of a quantum structure, leads to a change in the available energy levels. An interacting electron-hole pair in a quantum well-wire is studied within the framework of the effective-mass approximation and applied to an infinite well-wire confining potential, the...
