Abstract
A fully quantum mechanical theory for a system of photons and Coulomb interacting electron-hole pairs in semiconductors is investigated. The resulting semiconductor luminescence equations are discussed and evaluated for a variety of examples. For a quantum-well system, it is shown how luminescence at the exciton resonance can result from an incoherent electron-hole plasma. Also changes in carrier lifetimes due to radiative recombination are studied.
