File Description [top]

The CSA Technology Research Database (TRD) is a megafile of the technical bibliographic databases provided by CSA. TRD indexes and abstracts the literature of materials science, engineering, aerospace, and high technology. Literature indexed includes journal articles, conference papers, technical reports, books, monographs, standards, news briefs, and other document types as appropriate, from more than 3,000 serial and non-serial sources.

CSA Technology Research Database is available through all available Dialog contract options to corporate customers, and via site license only to those in the government sector. File 23 is not available to customers in the academic sector through Dialog.

    ABSTRACT: 
  /AB    We demonstrate that longitudinal-optical (LO) phonons efficiently pump 
    electrons from the quasi-X states to the quasi-I states in short-period 
    type-II GaAs/AlAs superlattices. At a very low temperature, the 
    phonon-assisted electron uptransfer can occur if the energy difference 
    between the lowest quasi-I states and quasi-X states is equal to or less 
    than the LO phonon energies. As the temperature increases, however, kinetic 
    energies of the electrons can facilitate the electron up-transfer. As a 
    result, we have observed peculiar behaviors on these superlattices. First, 
    photoluminescence intensity for the quasi-direct transition drastically 
    increases as the temperature or pump power increases. Second, the 
    dependence of the integrated photoluminescence intensity on the pump power 
    exhibits a square power law.
