We report on strong site-selective enhancement of the emission of localized excitons in an InxGa1-xN film, induced by resonant coupling to a single plasmon confined in a gold nanoparticle. The particle was attached to an atomic-force-microscope probe and placed at the near-field distance of the surface. The observation is explained by the enhancement of the(More)
We have investigated non-markovian dephasing by using time-resolved and spectrally resolved four-wave mixing measurements in a layered semiconductor GaSe. When the time interval between the first and second excitation pulses is increased, photon echo spectra exhibit narrowing only in a regime of a few picoseconds. In the initial dephasing of these signals,(More)
Tip-enhanced Rayleigh scattering images of Ge quantum dots grown on a Si substrate have been observed at room temperature. Changing the wavelength of the incidence light from 405 to 590 nm, the contrast of the images is reversed. It is found that the scattering intensity depends on the dielectric constants of the materials under the probe. By changing the(More)
Europium (III) (Eu(3+))-doped nanoporous silica spheres were synthesized, and the states of Eu(3+) ions in the silica framework structure were investigated. The ordered nanopores were preserved with the doping at the Eu(3+) molar concentration to Si up to 10 mol%, and the O-Si-O and Si-OH groups in the structures were clearly rearranged with the doping,(More)
In self-assembled multilayer arrays of micrometer-sized spheres that include small amounts of fluorescent particles, unique six-dot-triangular and seven-dot-hexagonal patterns have been known to appear in the fluorescence microscopic images. Although it has been suggested that these two types of patterns correspond to local domain structures, i.e., face(More)
We have observed a time-correlated frequency fluctuation in non-Markovian dephasing of excitons in InAs quantum dots using a six-wave mixing technique. In this measurement, the arrival times of the excitation pulses were controlled to eliminate the influence of Markovian dephasing and to measure the pure non-Markovian behavior. The experimental result shows(More)
