Enhancement of excitonic photoluminescence in silicon-doped n+/i-GaAs structures
AbstractWe present photoluminescence spectra of a molecular beam epitaxy grown GaAs structure consisting of the layer of intrinsic conductivity having 500 nm thickness and capped with silicon-doped 100 nm thick layer. The spectra were measured in the range of 3.6–77 K crystal lattice temperatures and at various laser excitation energies. Possible mechanisms of experimentally observed excitonic line narrowing and intensity enhancement in n+/i-GaAs homojunction are discussed.
