Abstract
Exciton dynamics in various 121 angstroms single quantum wells (QWs): a AlGaAs/GaAs QW and two AlGaAs/GaAsP QWs, under different built-in biaxial tension, has been investigated using time resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy at 5 K. Heavy-hole (hh) and light-hole (lh) exciton formation times from free electron-hole pair, hh (lh) exciton to lh (hh) exciton inter-subband relaxation times, exciton localization times to interface islands, and localized exciton annihilation decay times in the strained and non-strained QWs have been determined by fitting the PL time profiles at the lowest emission energy with an analytical solution for the localized exciton population profile obtained by solving six level rate equations.
