A theoretical description of the diffusion, thermalization and photoluminescence of indirect excitons in low temperature (≈ 1K) GaAs/AlGaAs coupled quantum wells is compared with experiments on their photoluminescence dynamics. The results shown in this contribution demonstrate a highly accurate agreement between the two. We concentrate on two key features seen in the photoluminescence pattern: the formation of an inner ring around a tightly focused laser excitation spot and a rapid increase in the intensity from the excitation spot immediately after laser termination – the PL-jump. These striking effects are explained in terms of the diffusion and relaxation thermodynamics of indirect excitons.
