Abstract

The photoluminescence decay of an excited semiconductor depends on a number of factors: 1. The penetration depth of the exciting light. 2. Diffusion of photogenerated electron-hole (e-h) pairs into the semiconductor bulk. 3. Kinetics of band-to-band radiative recombination and nonradiative recombination of e-h pairs at bulk or surface centers. 4. Photoluminescence re-absorption.
