Paper Abstract

We obtain inelastic electronic light scattering for interband transitions between valence-band states of GaAs layer embedded by self-assembled InAs quantum dots (QDs). Under a low-power selective cw excitation above the InAs band gap but below that of GaAs at a lattice temperature Tl = 5.1 K we find anomalous photoexcitation of carriers in the InAs QDs. Unusual photoinjection of the carriers to the GaAs barrier via strong Coulomb interactions results in creation of the nonequilibrium electron-hole plasma in the GaAs layer with density of n = p = 2.5 x 1018 cm-3 and an electron temperature Te = 25 K. Observed spectra reflects the band anisotropy and extends from zero to rather large frequency shifts with a long tail with a peak at about 300 - 400 cm-1 in good agreement with theoretical prediction.
