Indirect excitons (IXs) are bound pairs of electrons and holes confined in spatially separated layers. We present wide single quantum well (WSQW) heterostructures with high IX mobility, spectrally narrow IX emission, voltage-controllable IX energy, and long and voltage-controllable IX lifetime. This set of properties shows that WSQW heterostructures provide an advanced platform both for studying basic properties of IXs in low-disorder environments and for the development of high mobility…

High-Mobility Indirect Excitons in a Wide Single Quantum Well Heterostructure

We present wide single quantum well (WSQW) heterostructures and the achievement of record-high mobility of indirect excitons (IXs). WSQW heterostructures provide low-disorder platform both for

Long-range quantum transport of indirect excitons in van der Waals heterostructure

Long lifetimes of spatially indirect excitons (IXs), also known as interlayer excitons, make possible long-range IX propagation. Van der Waals heterostructures composed of atomically thin layers of

Voltage-controlled long-range propagation of indirect excitons in a van der Waals heterostructure

Indirect excitons (IXs), also known as interlayer excitons, can form the medium for excitonic devices whose operation is based on controlled propagation of excitons. A proof of principle for

Attractive and repulsive dipolar interaction in bilayers of indirect excitons

A spatially indirect excitons (IX), also known as an interlayer exciton, is a bound pair of an electron and a hole confined in separated layers. IXs have permanent electric dipole moments that makes

Ground and excited states of coupled exciton liquids in electron-hole quadrilayers

Interlayer excitons are bound states of electrons and holes confined in separate two-dimensional layers. Due to their repulsive dipolar interaction, interlayer excitons can form a correlated liquid.

Drift mobility of long-living excitons in coupled GaAs quantum wells

The authors report on high-mobility transport of indirect excitons in coupled GaAs quantum wells. A voltage-tunable in-plane potential gradient is defined for excitons by exploiting the quantum

Confinement and interaction of single indirect excitons in a voltage-controlled trap formed inside double InGaAs quantum Wells.

Voltage-tunable quantum traps confining individual spatially indirect and long-living excitons are realized by providing a coupled double quantum well with nanoscale gates. This enables us to study

TLDR
Lateral diffusion measurements of excitons at low temperature in double quantum wells of various widths are reported, establishing that the transport occurs by exciton motion.

TLDR
A strong enhancement of the exciton scattering rate to the low-energy states with increasing concentration of the indirect excitons is observed and bosonic stimulation ofexciton scattering is revealed, which is a signature of a degenerate Bose-gas of exciteons.
