Abstract

An infrared free-electron laser has been used to measure the first photoluminescence excitation spectrum well below the optical absorption edge in a thin-film amorphous semiconductor. This method should be useful for probing below-gap absorption mechanisms that contribute to photoluminescence in a wide class of amorphous semiconducting films.
