    Excitonic photoluminescence spectra in the ZnS-ZnSe strained-layer superlattices with imperfect heterointerfaces were studied experimentally. It is shown that the energy states of excitons in these structures are affected both by interface imperfections and internal strain caused by the lattice...

    Photoluminescence and photoreflectance responses at 12 K of Ga1-xInxAsySb1-y films grown over GaSb single-crystal substrates by liquid-phase epitaxy do not exhibit the same energy values. The photoluminescence peak shifts to 20 meV in relation to the photoreflectance response, indicating a...

    We have studied excitonic contributions and Bloch oscillation in the conduction miniband (continuum contributions) to the terahertz (THz) emission from semiconductor superlattices. THz emission frequency of the continuum contribution agrees with the Bloch frequency, while that of the excitonic...

    Photoluminescence spectroscopy has been employed to study the band edge emissions in GaN and AlN epilayers up to 800 K. Two distinctive activation processes have been observed in both GaN and AlN. The first process occurring below Tt=325 K (Tt=500 K) for GaN (AlN) is due to the activation of...

    Hydrothermally grown bulk ZnO (Tokyo Denpa) was investigated using junction-capacitance spectroscopy on silver oxide Schottky contacts (barrier height of 1.20 eV, ideality factor of 1.04). Two main shallow defects, T1 and T2, with thermal activation energies of 13 and 52 meV, respectively, were...

    Photoluminescence and absorption spectroscopy experiments are implemented on as-grown and thermally annealed GaAs1-xNx epilayers grown on GaAs(001) having a nitrogen content in the range of 0.4%–7.1%. At low temperature, photoluminescence spectra exhibit two sets of features: (i) a...

    Radiative carrier recombination processes in GaAs/GaNAs core/shell nanowires grown by molecular beam epitaxy on a Si substrate are systematically investigated by employing microphotoluminescence (μ-PL) and μ-PL excitation (μ-PLE) measurements complemented by time-resolved PL...

    In general, single GaAs quantum wells surrounded by AlxGa1-xAs cladding layers show only weak photoluminescence corresponding to exciton recombination. This is attributed to the poor quality of the AlGaAs in the lower cladding layer resulting in a degraded interface and poor GaAs in the quantum...
