We studied, by time-resolved microphotoluminescence (PL), the spontaneous emission dynamics of InAs/GaAs quantum boxes coupled to high Purcell factor (up to 155) whispering gallery modes of microdisks under nonresonant excitation. A global shortening of the PL decay by a factor of up to 12 was observed for the collection of quantum boxes on resonance with the modes. This behavior is well understood when the random distribution of the quantum boxes and the finite relaxation rate of the carriers are taken into account. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    We report a new analysis technique to determine the acceptor density NA and the donor density ND in high-purity GaAs from 10 K photoluminescence (PL) measurements. For both n-type and p-type samples, we find that NA/ND is related to the excitonic intensity ratio rx=I(A0,X)/I(D0,X) by...

    The stationary and time-resolved polariton radiation in ultrahigh quality AIGaAs layers have been studied. It has been found that elastic exciton-exciton collisions lead to the appearance of a low-energy line of polariton radiation. We show that the rate of exciton-to-polariton transitions...

    Electron, hole, and exciton states in the stacks composed of three strained (In,Ga)As quantum rings were computed.
