Equilibrium and dynamical properties of few particle systems in bilayers

Authors


Abstract

The equilibrium and dynamical properties of classical and quantum bilayers with spatially separated electrons and holes are investigated by a normal mode analysis and path integral Monte-Carlo (PIMC). For the low-density limit, where the particles are classical, we present results for the eigenfrequencies and eigenmodes and analyze the dependence on the inter-dot distance. Using PIMC we obtain the phase diagram of mesoscopic e-h-bilayers in the full space of temperature, density and interdot distance. Five different phases are identified: exciton liquid, exciton cluster (mesoscopic crystal), decoupled electron and hole crystals (Coulomb crystal), Coulomb liquid and electron-hole plasma.
