    The linearly polarized PL spectra of the asymmetric superlattice ZnSe / BeTe have been investigated at various exciting light intensities. The ZnSe layers have two kinds of well widths. It has been shown that the typical PL approximately consists of two peak components reflecting in the...

    We used time resolved photoinduced intersubband absorption excitation spectroscopy in order to measure the dynamics of resonantly photoexcited excitons in multi-quantum well and superlattice samples. We show that they decay radiatively, much faster than thermalized excitons, and that their...

    Two types of excitons, localized at opposite interfaces and characterized by different magnitudes of the exchange interactions at the same radiation energies, are simultaneously in type-II GaAs/AlAs superlattices. It is shown that the additional long-wavelength luminescence line in superlattices...

    Low-temperature photoluminescence and photoluminescence excitation spectra of GaAs/AlGaAs semiconductor superlattices having different potential barrier widths (b = 20, 30, 50, and 200 Ã…), i.e., degrees of tunnel coupling between quantum wells, are studied in magnetic fields up to 5 T...

    Optical-resonance-Raman scattering by acoustic phonons is used to study the effect of an electric field on the state of excitons in GaAs/AlAs superlattices. When the energy of the exciting photon coincides with the energy of an exciton bound to Wannier-Stark states of a heavy hole and electron...

    The method of molecular layering is used to prepare CdS thin films and CdS/ZnS and CdS/CdSe superlattices. The dependence of the exciton photoluminescence on film thickness is studied, and the role of internal strains is examined. The effect of the excitation intensity on the superlattice...

    We report the generation of terahertz (THz) radiation in a biased semiconductor superlattice by difference-frequency mixing of interband transitions. The Wannier-Stark spectrum of the superlattice was selectively excited by two spectrally narrow laser lines. The emitted THz radiation was...

    The ratio of the densities of intra- and interwell excitons in a symmetric system of coupled quantum wells — a superlattice based on a GaAs/AlGaAs heterostructure — is investigated over a wide range of optical excitation power densities. Conversion of interwell excitons into...
