Luminescence at energy lower than the absorption edge has been investigated in crystals of GaSe, containing different degrees of lattice disorder, as a function of temperature, of photoexcitation intensity, and of excitation energy. At low excitation intensity, the extrinsic luminescence is composed of broad overlapping bands that present a blue shift when the temperature increases. Their shape and intensity is strongly dependent on the laser excitation frequency and on the degree of lattice disorder. The results are discussed in terms of a model involving the recombination of shallow donors and free electrons with deep acceptors. These two recombination mechanisms and those involving free and bound excitons are found to be competitive. Their relative importance is strongly dependent on the concentration of structural defects, on the temperature, on the excitation intensity, and on the excitation frequency

Abstract

Luminescence at energy lower than the absorption edge has been investigated in crystals of GaSe, containing different degrees of lattice disorder, as a function of temperature, of photoexcitation intensity, and of excitation energy. At low excitation intensity, the extrinsic luminescence is composed of broad overlapping bands that present a blue shift when the temperature increases. Their shape and intensity is strongly dependent on the laser excitation frequency and on the degree of lattice disorder. The results are discussed in terms of a model involving the recombination of shallow donors and free electrons with deep acceptors. These two recombination mechanisms and those involving free and bound excitons are found to be competitive. Their relative importance is strongly dependent on the concentration of structural defects, on the temperature, on the excitation intensity, and on the excitation frequency
