Characterization of quantum confinement in GaAs using photoluminescence spectroscopy

Abstract

We compare a bulk gallium arsenide sample with a sample formed of stacked quantum wells to observe the bandgap shift owing to quantum confinement. The observations agree well with the infinite potential well model.

I’m fascinated by physics and how it combines abstract thinking with real world problems, and I am starting to fuse this interest with programming both inside and outside the lab.
