Abstract

Spontaneous emission lifetime in a one-dimensional AlGaAs distributed Bragg reflector microcavity has been systematically measured as a function of emission wavelength tuned by the quantum-confined Stark effect in order to confirm the cavity-induced alteration of the SE lifetime. The result manifests a substantial cavity-induced fractional change of the exciton decay times, ∼30% around the on-axis resonant wavelength, despite the relatively large broadening of the excitonic emission being comparable to the cavity resonance width in the low- Q cavity.
