Our laboratory is equipped to study the spectroscopic properties of
semiconductor quantum structures.
The spectral ranges are the visible and adjacent ranges and the microwave

The main experimental methods that are employed in our laboratory are:
1.Absorption, reflection and photoluminescence spectroscopy.
3.Raman scattering.
4.Modulation spectroscopy, mainly under microwave irradiation.
5.Cyclotron resonance, dimensional magnetoplasma resonance and optically
detected cyclotron resonance.

The laboratory contains several spectrometers, lasers, superconducting
magnets and microwave equipment.


 The current research is mainly on the effects of a dilute two-dimensional
electron gas on excitons and polaritons in quantum wells. Some of the
research projects are:

1.Excitonic polaritons that are formed of neutral and charged polaritons in microcavities with embedded quantum wells.
2.Electron-polariton scattering processes
3.Non-linear microwave absorption and cyclotron resonance in quantum wells containing a dilute two-dimensional electron gas.
