Quantum theory of dropletons

M. Mootz, M. Kira, S. W. Koch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A quantum theory is presented for the identification of dropletons as new quasiparticles in GaAs quantum wells. Dropletons consist of more than four electron-hole pairs in a liquid-like state and have quantized binding energy due to their small size.
