    Vibrational states as high as n = 15 have been experimentally observed in CO molecules adsorbed in a monolayer on the NaCl(100) surface after pumping the n = 0 → 1 vibrational transition with a short (5 µs) infrared laser pulse. These high states become populated from successive single...

    It is shown that in order to achieve lasing in structures with CdSe submonolayers inserted in a ZnSe matrix, no additional optical confinement of the active region using thick wide-gap layers is required. The high oscillator strength of the excitons trapped at CdSe islands modulates the...
