Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics.

Influence of localized electric field on the bandedge emission of hybrid Au-GaN/InGaN quantum wells

Gryczynski, K.G. and Vemuri, P.R. and Watson, Ian and Neogi, Arup (2011) Influence of localized electric field on the bandedge emission of hybrid Au-GaN/InGaN quantum wells. Applied Physics Letters, 99 (12). ISSN 0003-6951

Abstract

The modification in the bandgap of single GaN/InGaN quantum wells in the presence of a gold thin film with surface plasmon polariton energy off-resonant and resonant to the photoluminesnce emission energy is studied. The quantum well emission energy can be either blue shifted or red-shifted depending on the localized electric field induced by the metal thin film. A theory of electrostatic image charge induced alteration of the confinement potential is presented to explain the observed experimental shifts.
