The significance of the locally varying Coulomb interaction potential in a semiconductor quantum well coupled to a photonic crystal structure was demonstrated. The absorption spectra showed that the modified Coulomb potential induced characteristic spatial modulations of the optical semiconductor excitations with the periodicity of the photonic crystal. These spatially modulated arrangements influence the optical and electronic properties in the incoherent regime.
