Abstract or Summary
  • Double excitonic absorption peaks are observed in textured BaCuSF and BaCuSeF thin films. The excitonic doublet separation increases with increasing fraction of heavy chalcogen in the thin-film solid solutions, in good agreement with the spin-orbit splitting of the valence bands calculated by density-functional theory. In BaCuSF and BaCuSeF, the excitons have large binding energies (95 and 65 meV, respectively) and can be observed at room temperature. A three-dimensional Wannier-Mott excitonic absorption model gives good agreement between the experimental and theoretical optical properties. Band gaps of BaCuSF and BaCuSeF calculated using the GW approximation agree with experiment. In BaCuTeF, transitions across the lowest direct energy gap and excitonic absorption are suppressed, extending its transparent range.
