Abstract
Experimental results of quasi steady state and time-resolved luminescence spectroscopy are reported from highly excited CdTe quantum wells and discussed in terms of the exciton and electron-hole plasma (EHP) phases. Steady state spectra shows the presence of three principal regimes with increasing excitation intensity: exciton gas in the collision dominated regime, exciton-EHP phase transition, and the plasma dominated regime with bandgap renormalization. The phase transition regime has been further investigated by time-resolved spectroscopy which indicates a degree of coexistence for the dense exciton and EHP phases shortly following the excitation by a short laser pulse.
