Paper Abstract

Auger recombination processes in type II heterostructures with strained quantum wells (QW) have been studied theoretically. It is shown that in type II QW there are two channels of electron and hole recombination. During the Auger recombination processes these two channels interfere destructively, which results in decrease of the Auger matrix element and the AR rate. During radiative recombination process one of these recombination channels is the dominant. It is shown that the Auger recombination rate essentially depends on strain. It is demonstrated that under certain conditions the Auger recombination rate can be suppressed by choosing the optimal value of strain.
