Magnetic and Electric Field Effects in Semiconductor Quantum Microcavity Structures
The effects of magnetic and electric field on the vacuum Rabi exciton-photon coupling in semiconductor quantum microcavity structures are presented. A number of phenomena are described including marked increase (decrease) of the vacuum Rabi coupling in external magnetic (electric) field due to the increased (decreased) exciton oscillator strength, exciton Zeeman splitting, and unusual linewidth narrowing effects attributed to motional narrowing.

- 12.Our original model in Ref 8, as for Ref 1, was based on that of Y Zhu et al, Phys Rev Letts 64, 2499 (1990), in which the distributed Bragg reflectors were treated as a single reflector. This does not take into account the penetration of the cavity photon mode into the mirrors or reflections from QWs in the cavity.Google Scholar
- 13.It should be noted in previous zero magnetic field experiments that there was no discernible difference between an on-resonance spectra at 95K or 5KGoogle Scholar

- 15.In the electro-optic tuning experiments of the same sample, section 3, a well-width of 120Å was required to reproduce the unperturbed exciton shift rate with electric field.Google Scholar
- 17.The exciton is split into two components by the magnetic field. At resonance each component is repelled by the cavity mode by approximately half the value of the Zeeman splitting.Google Scholar
