Paper Abstract

External quantum efficiency (EQE) is a parameter widely used in various photonic devices. In laser refrigeration of solids, materials with high EQE are essential for achieving net cooling. Pulsed power-dependent photoluminescence measurement is developed and demonstrated to be a rapid and efficient tool to determine the EQE and screen the sample quality before the fabrication process for the application of laser cooling in semiconductors. EQE values obtained from this technique are shown to be consistent with results from other more precise, but time-consuming measurements for various samples at different temperatures.
