Abstract

A microscopic theory used to analyze free carriers, bound excitons and their coupling to photons and phonons was presented. For different densities, lattice temperatures and photonic environments, the formation dynamics and statistics of incoherent excitons were examined. It was shown that luminescence experiments depended strongly on the photonic environment. The stationary exciton population was governed by a balance between formation and radiative decay.
