Distribution of resonance fluorescence from excitons in quantum wells at different temperatures — •Gerolf K. G. Burau, Günter Manzke, Frank Kieseling, and Heinrich Stolz — Universität Rostock, Institut für Physik, Universitätsplatz 3, 18055 Rostock
Resonance fluorescence has been established as a valuable tool for the detection of excitons in quantum wells (QW) [1,2]. We have developed a setup using high numerical aperture objectives giving a spatial resolution of 650 nm at a wavelength of 812 nm of the exciting laser. This enables (i) the spectroscopy of single localized excitons, and (ii) an increase of the intensity of the laser spot by a factor of 50. The sample consists of a series of single QWs with varying well width. Even in highest quality QWs with large well width, the image of the excitation spot under resonant conditions shows a granular structure indicating the localisation of the exciton states.
Exciting any of these states resonantly with a 1 MHz line width single mode cw laser. The resultant resonant Rayleigh scattering could be observed with high spectral and spatial resolution. The spectra show a strong dependent excitation power and temperature. The origins these effects are discussed.
