InAs Quantum Dot Transitions

March 1, 2011[singlepic id=364 w=320 h=240 float=right] The fundamental interaction governing light emission from semiconductor materials is the coupling between electronic states in the semiconductor and a local electromagnetic field. The current generation of solid-state lighting devices operates in the so-called “weak-coupling” regime, in which the rate of energy transfer between the electronic states and [...]
