ABSTRACT
The energy of the exciton ground state in a semiconducting cylindrical quantum wire surrounded by a dielectric has been calculated using a variational technique accounting for the effect of dielectric enhancement. The effect of dielectric enhancement in such a system has been clearly demonstrated. Exciton parameters have been calculated for an intercalated leadiodide-based quasi-one-dimensional semiconductor and GaAs wires in asbestos nanotubes.

    The exciton and trion states in semiconductor quantum wires are treated by the variational method. Simple trial functions provide an adequate precision of the calculation over a wide region of wire radii, with an arbitrary relation between the effective masses of charge carriers. The precision...

    We present a combined low-temperature time-resolved cathodoluminescence and photoluminescence study of exciton recombination mechanisms in a 3.8 nm thick a-plane (Al,Ga)N/GaN quantum well (QW). We observe the luminescence from QW excitons and from excitons localized on basal stacking faults...

    We use spatially and temporally resolved photoluminescence to measure exciton diffusion in single zinc blende GaAs/AlGaAs core/shell and mixed phase InP nanowires. Excitons in the single phase GaAs/AlGaAs nanowires are seen to diffuse rapidly throughout the nanowire with a measured diffusion...

    InP nanowires grown on silicon substrate are investigated using time-resolved spectroscopy. A strong modification of the exciton lifetime is observed (from 0.11 to 1.2 ns) when the growth temperature is increased from 340 °C to 460 °C. This strong dependence is not related to the density...

    For the first time, we evidence the delocalization of a single quasiparticule state, an exciton, over the entire length of the organic quantum wire on which it is photocreated. This quantum wire, a polydiacetylene chain, has the properties of a perfect quasi-1D semiconducting system where,...
