Paper Abstract

The observation of optical gain at the trion transition of n-doped ZnSe quantum wells is reported. The specific optical coupling between the trion and electron band gives rise to stimulated emission on the low-energy wing of the trion photoluminescence band without degeneracy and inversion in the total particle numbers. Gain values as large as 104 cm-1 are found for excitation intensities of some kW/cm2. A calculation of the absorption-gain crossover photon energy based on a kinetically determined equilibrium of excitons, trions and electrons with a common carrier gas temperature describes the experimental data well.
