ABSTRACT
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 (e.g....

    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.
