Title: Temperature dependence of photoluminescence spectra of bilayer two-dimensional electron gases in LaAlO{sub 3}/SrTiO{sub 3} superlattices: coexistence of Auger recombination and single-carrier trapping

Abstract

We report emerging photoluminescence (PL) of bilayer two-dimensional electron gases (2DEG) in LaAlO{sub 3}/SrTiO{sub 3} (LAO/STO) systems. A strong blue PL emerges in bilayer-2DEGs in LAO/STO/LAO/STO which doesn’t show in LAO/STO. PL band in bilayer-2DEGs includes both nearly temperature independent Auger recombination and temperature dependent free electron trapping while it crossovers from Auger recombination to single carrier trapping in LAO/STO. The PL signal of free electron trapping appears at high temperatures and it is much stronger than Auger recombination in the conducting channel in bilayer 2DEGs. This observation shows that high mobility carriers dominate the carrier dynamics in bilayer-2DEGs in LAO/STO superlattices.
