FIG. 1.

Temperature dependence of the energy position of photoluminescence recombination peaks in alloys. The energy position is given relative to the maximum position of the low temperature recombination spectrum. For (a) and (b), recombination from donor-bound (down triangles) and free (up triangles) excitons can be observed spectrally separated. The solid and dashed lines are fitted with Eq.

Schematic representation of exciton recombination channels (dashed line arrows) and scattering processes (solid line arrows) in a semiconductor alloy.
