We have investigated carrier relaxation and exciton recombination dynamics in ZnO/ZnMgO multiple quantum wells using femtosecond pump-probe techniques at room temperature. For a probe energy above the band gap, the hot carriers exhibit an effective relaxation by longitudinal optical phonon scattering with a cooling time of 700-850 fs. By detecting the emission near the band-gap, a longer decay time of a few picoseconds was observed which is attributed to acoustic phonon scattering. As the probe...[Show more]
