Abstract

The light emission of optically excited quantum well excitons can be divided into two parts: the nonscattered contribution and the scattered one. Recent theoretical work was focused on isolated mechanisms for the generation of secondary emission. In extension of these studies, a more general situation was considered by studying the simultaneous action of several emission generating mechanisms for the case of 1s excitation in the low density case. The theoretical approach is based on a coupled set of Heisenberg equations of motion for quantum correlation functions of excitons, photons, phonons and their assisted density matrices in a disordered system using second order Born and Markovian approximation.
