    Confinement and optical properties in Si/BiMnO3/Si quantum wells are addressed. The characteristics of the confined excitons are determined varying the band offset, which was not measured or calculated yet. The ground state e-hh exciton binding energy is shown to be in the 3–4 meV range,...

    The mechanism of ultraviolet stimulated emission was investigated in ZnO/ZnMgO multiquantum wells. Stimulated emission induced by exciton-exciton scattering occurred throughout a range of temperatures from 5 K to room temperature. At temperatures higher than 160 K, stimulated emission due to...

    The behavior of the optical-orientation signal under resonant optical excitation of localized excitons in quantum wells with semimagnetic layers was studied both experimentally and theoretically. The most remarkable experimental observation made in this study is the increase in the degree of...

    Photoluminescence spectra of interwell excitons in double GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells (n-i-n structures) have been investigated (an interwell exciton in these systems is an electron-hole pair spatially separated by a narrow AlAs barrier). Under resonance excitation by circularly polarized light,...

    Screening of excitonic states by a system of 2D electrons (or holes) in GaAs/AlGaAs single quantum wells is studied. With increasing concentration of 2D charge carriers, a threshold-type disappearance of excitonic states is observed in both luminescence and reflectance spectra. The higher the...

    We report the observation of interband exciton transitions in InSb/Al[sub x]In[sub 1-x]Sb multi-quantum-well samples. The exciton peaks are identified with the use of a simple quantum well model. The strain present in the InSb wells alters the spectrum significantly from that for unstrained...

    It is shown that the photon avalanche mechanism can be used for producing nonequilibrium electron-hole pairs by low-intensity IR light with a photon energy smaller than the energy gap of a semiconductor by a factor of 3-5. A type II heterostructure with deep quantum wells is proposed to be...
