ABSTRACT
In0.063Ga0.937As-GaAs strained-layer superlattices are grown by alternately supplying organometals and arsine. This method is called flow-rate modulation epitaxy. These superlattices display low-temperature (2 K) photoluminescence with a very narrow linewidth that is less than 1 meV. Three sharp lines are clearly resolved in the photoluminescence spectra. Model calculation confirms that these lines are not caused by a fluctuation of well thickness. These lines result from electronic transitions through different exciton states, which are free and bound excitons. Flow-rate modulation epitaxy enables the growth of atomically flat InGaAs-GaAs interfaces which make the excitonic emission lines very sharp. Thus, free-exciton and impurity-bound exciton lines are well resolved.
