Abstract

We have studied the temperature dependence of CER spectra of layered InGaAs QWRs and QDCs and found strain-induced splitting of lh and hh states occur in both InGsAs and GaAs layers. By fitting experimental data using Varshni law and Bose-Einstein type relation, various parameters are obtained, which are similar to those of bulk GaAs. We pointed out that a caution must be excised when extracting the electron-phonon interaction parameters by subtracting the thermal dilation part from the experimental data of the embedded semiconductor microstructures because in these structures the temperature-induced lattice-dilation may produce additional strain besides the lattice mismatch.
