Abstract

The excitonic effect in resonant tunneling process is of great interest because of its fundamental quantum mechanical aspects and its potential application to tunneling devices. We have demonstrated a new way of direct creation of excitons in a GaAs quantum well (QW) by hole assisted electron resonant tunneling.1
