We describe fabrication and photoluminescence excitation of InGaAs/InP quantum wires with a lateral dimension of ∼350 Å. Transverse confinement results in the splitting of the n = 1 heavy hole-electron transition. Three of these levels are observed in the excitation spectrums The exciton energies agree with the theoretical predictions based on a new method of solving the two-dimensional effective mass Schrödinger equation.

    The intense, ultra-fast electronic excitation of clean silicon (100)-(2 × 1) surfaces leads to the formation of silicon nanostructures embedded in silicon, which photoluminesce in the yellow-green (∼ 2-eV band gap). The silicon surfaces were irradiated with slow, highly charged ions...

    The intensity of the photoluminescence of erbium in silicon is analyzed by a model which takes into account the formation of free excitons, the binding of excitons to erbium ions, the excitation of inner-shell 4f electrons of erbium ions and their subsequent decay by light emission.

    We have studied the relaxed state of excitons in PbBr[sub 2] and PbCl[sub 2] crystals from the photoluminescence (PL) properties at low temperatures. The analysis of decay curves of intrinsic PL band reveals that excitons relax into charge-separated pairs of a self-trapped electron and a...
