Exciton condensation in quantum wells. Exciton hydrodynamics. The effect of localized states
(Institute for Nuclear Research, 47 Nauky ave., 03680 Kyiv, Ukraine)
The hydrodynamic equations for indirect excitons in the double quantum wells are studied taking into account 1) a possibility of an exciton condensed phase formation, 2) the presence of pumping, 3) finite value of the exciton lifetime, 4) exciton scattering by defects. The threshold pumping emergence of the periodical exciton density distribution is found. The role of localized and free exciton states is analyzed in the formation of emission spectra.
