    A GaAs/A1GaAs triple-quantum-well structure is designed to have its lowest energy excitonic transition located significantly above the GaAs band gap, while maintaining large Stark shifts. We present photocurrent measurements of absorption features found in two different A1[sub 0.3]Ga[sub 0.7]As...

    We studied the vibration-induced dipole moment of methane by observing Stark-modulation spectra of the 2ν3 band centered at 1.66 μm. The spectral purity of an external cavity semiconductor laser and radiation density in a Fabry–Perot cavity absorption cell are sufficiently high to...

    The optical properties of wurtzite-structured InN grown on sapphire substrates by molecular-beam epitaxy have been characterized by optical absorption, photoluminescence, and photomodulated reflectance techniques. These three characterization techniques show an energy gap for InN between 0.7 and...

    A two-dimensional analog of the Merrifield model of the coupling between the Frenkel and charge transfer (CT) excitations of a molecular crystal is applied for the calculation of the electroabsorption (EA) spectra of polyacene crystals. The approach is essentially nonempirical, with most of the...

    Growth of m-plane GaN quantum nanostructures on an AlN buffer layer on m-plane SiC is investigated. GaN nanostructures with different shapes are obtained depending on the AlN buffer layer thickness and the amount of GaN deposited. For AlN buffer layer below 300 nm, GaN quantum wires, elongated...
