Femtosecond transient absorption saturation measurements are used to investigate the scattering of optically excited carriers in AlGaAs. With pulses as short as 35 fs at 1.98 eV, scattering times ranging from 13 to 330 fs are observed in samples of AlxGa1-xAs with x=0, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, and 0.4. A dramatic decrease in the rate of carrier scattering out of the initial optically excited states is observed with increasing Al concentration.

    A model, based on the intraband scattering of excitons in one-dimensional J-aggregates is proposed to describe the lengthening of the experimentally observed radiative lifetime with temperature. According to this mechanism, the exciton-phonon scattering transfers the oscillator strength from the...

    Abstract. In this paper we present measurements of light amplification in optically pumped ZnCdSe GRINSCH (graded refraction index separate confinement heterostructures). In several differently designed samples we observe the presence of two gain mechanisms, which involve localized excitons and...

    A matrix effect on the exciton phonon coupling in microcrystallites embedded in a matrix is investigated theoretically. It is shown that a parameter σ defined as the square of the ratio of the phonon bandwidth of a matrix material to that of a microcrystallite material is a crucial one,...

    We show, both theoretically and experimentally, that for a turbid tissue medium where Mie scattering is dominant, multiple scattering not only reduces the illumination power in the forward direction but also exhibits an anisotropic distribution of scattered photons. Thus, a signal level under...
