We report studies of the homogeneous linewidth in CdSe/ZnS core/shell nanocrystals by means of high-resolution spectral hole burning under low excitation levels. The hole burning spectrum reveals a sharp spectral hole as well as clearly resolved acoustic phonon sidebands. Homogeneous linewidths as narrow as 32 μeV were obtained. At low temperature, the temperature dependence of the homogeneous linewidth deviates from the usual linear dependence, reflecting the effects of phonon quantization. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    Femtosecond spectral hole burning experiments were performed on InAs/GaAs quantum dots to investigate the influence of high excitation intensities. The observation of additional spectral holes, as well as distinct absorption line broadening are both attributed to two-photon absorption processes....

    We present fully atomistic calculations of the electron and hole mobilities in Ge nanowires with diameter up to 10 nm. We show that the phonon-limited mobility is strongly dependent on the diameter and on the orientation of the nanowire, and is also very responsive to unaxial strains. The...

    Zero-phonon hole (ZPH) profiles and hole spectra that span about eight decades of burn fluence are reported for Al-phthalocyanine tetrasulphonate in hyperquenched glassy water (HGW) films at 5.0 K. The profiles of unsaturated zero-phonon holes (low burn fluence stage) are more sharply tipped...

    The broadenings of the E1 and E1+Δ1 interband critical points can be understood as lifetime effects due to the ultrafast relaxation of the photoexcited hot holes. The contributions to these broadenings arising from the electrons in the conduction band are small, as intervalley scattering...
