    The infrared radiation from hot holes in InxGa1-xAs/GaAs heterostructures with strained quantum wells during lateral transport is investigated experimentally. It is found that the infrared radiation intensities are nonmonotonic functions of the electric field. This behavior is due to the escape...

    The luminescence spectra of GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells (QWs) with low-density quasi-two-dimensional electron and hole channels were studied. It was demonstrated that, at temperatures below some critical value (T[sub c]~30 K) and for an excitation power lying in a certain temperature-dependent...

    Specially designed structures have been grown in the GaAs/GaAlAs/AlAs system, in order to get a spatial separation of photocreated electrons and holes and thus modify the band profile under illumination in a nonstandard way. The photoinduced electric field is measured by the Stark Shift of the...

    The authors demonstrate efficient hole spin injection from a ferromagnetic metal (Ni) contact in a forward biased light emitting Schottky diode (LESD) fabricated on a GaAs based heterostructure with a quantum well (QW). The spin polarization of the injected holes was detected by measuring the...

    We use absorption, photoluminescence, and x-ray diffraction spectra of two GaAs/AlAs type II heterostructures, whose GaAs well thicknesses differ by [bar_over_tilde:_approx._equal_to]4 Ã… to obtain a direct measurement of the individual quantum confinement energy shifts of the heavy hole,...

    We monitor the near-infrared (NIR) transmission of a GaAs/AlGaAs multi quantum well while illuminated with intense terahertz (THz) pulses. We present the first clear evidence of the intra-excitonic Autler-Townes effect when pumping the 1s-2p transition of the heavy-hole exciton. We discuss our...

    We report photoluminescence (PL) measurements carried out on the 2D A+ center system, that was prepared in GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells by means of doping wells and barriers with beryllium. In general, four PL lines were observed in our samples depending on doping concentration, temperature and...

    We have investigated the behavior of atomic hydrogen (or deuterium) introduced by plasma in highly doped GaInAs:Zn epitaxial layers. Different experimental techniques have been used: secondary-ion mass spectrometry (SIMS) profiling, electronic transport measurements, and infrared absorption...

    The tunneling dynamics of photogenerated holes in a biased GaAs/AlGaAs double-barrier resonant tunneling structure is studied using time-resolved photoluminescence. For voltages biasing the structure in the resonant tunneling regime, a single exponential time decay was observed. However, for...
