Abstract

A microscopic interpretation of spontaneous and stimulated emission in semiconductor microcavities is developed using Semiconductor Luminescence Equations obtained from a quantum theory for the interacting electron-hole system and microcavity photons. The properties of bare quantum well luminescence as well as nonlinear photoluminescence of microcavity systems showing a threshold-like transition are consistently explained.
