Publication# Coulomb correlation and band gap renormalization at high carrier densities in quantum wires

Abstract

We have studied the luminescence of narrow quantum wires at photoexcitation densities of up to similar to 3 x 10(6) cm(-1). We show that even at these densities, which are well above the expected Mott density of 8 x 10(5) cm(-1), excitonic recombination dominates over other recombination channels in stark contrast with the behavior of quantum wells and bulk structures at equivalent densities. As we observe no significant shift in the peak energy with density, an upper limit to the band gap renormalization can be set.

Quantum dot

Quantum dots (QDs) – also called semiconductor nanocrystals, are semiconductor particles a few nanometres in size, having optical and electronic properties that differ from those of larger particles as a result of quantum mechanics. They are a central topic in nanotechnology and materials science. When the quantum dots are illuminated by UV light, an electron in the quantum dot can be excited to a state of higher energy. In the case of a semiconducting quantum dot, this process corresponds to the transition of an electron from the valence band to the conductance band.

Current density

In electromagnetism, current density is the amount of charge per unit time that flows through a unit area of a chosen cross section. The current density vector is defined as a vector whose magnitude is the electric current per cross-sectional area at a given point in space, its direction being that of the motion of the positive charges at this point. In SI base units, the electric current density is measured in amperes per square metre. Assume that A (SI unit: m2) is a small surface centred at a given point M and orthogonal to the motion of the charges at M.

Strongly correlated material

Strongly correlated materials are a wide class of compounds that include insulators and electronic materials, and show unusual (often technologically useful) electronic and magnetic properties, such as metal-insulator transitions, heavy fermion behavior, half-metallicity, and spin-charge separation. The essential feature that defines these materials is that the behavior of their electrons or spinons cannot be described effectively in terms of non-interacting entities.
