Abstract

Photoluminescence of semiconductor quantum wells is studied using a fully quantized theory for the light-matter interaction. Quantum fluctuations of the light field lead to direct coupling between a coherent excitation and luminescence in other directions. Numerical results for the time evolution of the luminescence spectrum and emission intensity dynamics after a femtosecond pulse excitation are presented.
