Stimulated Emission from Wide-Gap Semiconductors
Stimulated emission and optical gain problems are reviewed on the basis of analysis of highly photoexcited III-Nitride and ZnO wide-gap materials. Spontaneous and stimulated emission along with optical gain of these materials in UV region is analyzed. The possible mechanisms of inverted population in In-containing materials and ZnO semiconductors are discussed involving mechanisms of dense electron-hole plasma, carrier (exciton) localization, as well as various interaction processes in dense exciton gas.
