Title in Portuguese
Estudo de processos de recombinação em poços quânticos múltiplos de GaAs/AlGaAs
Keywords in Portuguese

Abstract in Portuguese
Neste trabalho, investigamos a influência da estrutura de energia das minibandas dos estados eletrônicos ocupados no tempo de recombinação em poços quânticos múltiplos (MQW) fracamente acoplados de GaAs / AlGaAs. Um dos melhores métodos para estudar o efeito da estrutura energética consiste em medir o tempo de recombinação eletrônica em função de parâmetros expostas à influência externa que afeta a estrutura energética, por isso, aplicamos um campo magnético externo. O espectro da emissão de fotoluminescência foi composta pelas contribuições das minibandas da banda de condução, Γ – Γ e Γ – XZ. Observou-se um aumento notável do tempo de recombinação quando o campo magnético causou a despopulação da minibanda de maior energia, Γ – XZ. O efeito observado é atribuído à variação induzida pelo campo magnético na densidade dos estados eletrônicos.

Abstract in English
In the present work, we investigate the influence of the miniband energy structure of the populated electron states on the recombination time in GaAs/AlGaAs weakly coupled multiple quantum wells (MQW). The best method to study the effect of the energy structure is to measure the recombination time in the same sample subject to external influence which affects the energy structure, therefore, we apply an external magnetic field. The photoluminescence emission was composed of the contributions from the Γ – Γ and Γ – XZ conduction band minibands. Remarkable enhancement of the recombination time was observed when the magnetic field caused depopulation of the higher energy Γ – XZ miniband. The observed effect is attributed to the magnetic field induced variation of the electron density of states.
