Abstract
The decay properties of excitons in Cd1-xMnxTe/Cd1-yMgyTe single and multip le quantum wells are investigated by the time-resolved photoluminescence me asurements. We observed the conversion of the dark excitons to the bright e xcitons by a spin-flip process. This yields a two-exponential decay of the photoluminescence intensity. The magnetic field dependence of the two-expon ential decay is discussed in the frame of the spin-flip scattering and the giant Zeeman splitting in single quantum wells. The temperature dependence of exciton decays is interpreted by the increase of exciton scattering rate due to thermal activation in multiple quantum well. (C) 2000 Elsevier Scie nce B.V.
