Abstract

Extremely radiative nature of high-quality AlN single crystalline epilayers was identified by means of far ultraviolet time-resolved photoluminescence using a frequency-quadrupled femtosecond Al2 O3:Ti laser. The gross radiative lifetimes of a free excitonic polariton emission as short as 10 ps at 7 K and 180 ps at 300 K were revealed, which are the shortest ever reported for bulk semiconductor materials.
