We study the interaction between delocalized excitons in a semiconductor quantum well and a longitudinal mode of the radiation field in a semiconductor microcavity with Bragg mirrors. The drastic enhancement of the spontaneous emission rate, that occurs under strong coupling conditions, is found to be surprisingly robust with respect to incoherent processes leading to dephasing of the exciton mode.

Abstract

We study the interaction between delocalized excitons in a semiconductor quantum well and a longitudinal mode of the radiation field in a semiconductor microcavity with Bragg mirrors. The drastic enhancement of the spontaneous emission rate, that occurs under strong coupling conditions, is found to be surprisingly robust with respect to incoherent processes leading to dephasing of the exciton mode.
