Abstract

The quantum theory for the secondary emission of quantum wells (QW) is studied by deriving the equations for coupled coherent and incoherent emissions characteristics of the interacting electron-hole system. Intrinsic coherent characteristics exhibited by the secondary emissions, are driven by the quantum fluctuations of the light field. Furthermore, coherent nonclassical signatures are observed from the emitted light field.
