Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Coherent signatures in the semiconductor light emission are studied using a fully quantum mechanical theory for the system of photons and Coulomb interacting electron-hole pairs. The dominant light-matter correlations couple the semiconductor Bloch and luminescence equations yielding significant quantum corrections. A coherent excitation leads to squeezing of the emitted light as well as to entanglement between light and matter.
