We report the optical properties of a composite structure comprising a type-II GaAs0.7Sb0.3/GaAs quantum well (QW) and an InAs quantum-dot (QD) layer adjacent to the QW. The low-temperature photoluminescence (PL) of the composite structure with a 5-nm-thick GaAs spacer demonstrates a redshift of 44 meV, as compared with that of GaAs0.7Sb0.3/GaAs single QW at low excitation level. The redshift reveals the existence of local potential minimums, induced by the stress exerted by the adjacent QDs, in the type-II QW. At higher temperature, the composite structure shows stronger PL intensity than the GaAs0.7Sb0.3 QW, indicating the potential of the applications to laser diodes.

    Peculiar mechanism of carrier transfer, excitonic trapping, from quantum well (QW) states to quantum dot (QD) states is clearly observed for the intentionally designed strained InAs:In0.3Ga0.7As/GaAs QD:QW structure. This transfer occurs very efficient at low excitation densities and low...

    The band structure and excitonic recombination of a Cd0.08Zn0.92O/ZnO single quantum well (SQW) were shown to vary according to well width (LW). The excitonic localization of a Cd0.08Zn0.92O single layer used as a well layer of the SQW was based on alloy disorder by spatial inhomogeneity of the...

    We have investigated the photoluminescence of tensilely strained silicon layers grown on relaxed SiGe buffer layers. At low excitation densities, the photoluminescence is dominated by the radiative recombinations associated with the dislocations in the buffer layer and the band-edge luminescence...

    We report results that witness the possibility of controlling the temperature (T) dependence of the photoluminescence (PL) from self-assembled InAs/GaAs quantum dots (QDs) overgrown by an InxGa1-xAs layer forming a quantum well. A growth treatment using tetrachloromethane eliminates the...

    A systematic study on many-body effects on Terahertz Quantum Well Photodetectors (THZ QWPs) is reported. Peak absorption frequency differs by more than 20% when taking many-body effects into account. The phenomenon is shown to be critical in designs with a small barrier height and a high doping...

    Results of photoluminescence (PL) studies of heterostructures with strongly strained In xGa1 − xAs quantum wells (QWs) are presented. It is shown that the dependence of the PL intensity on the QW thickness has a maximum whose position depends on the composition of the In xGa1 − xAs...
