The energy relaxation processes of CdS self-assembled quantum dots (QDs) embedded in ZnSe were investigated. Longitudinal-optical (LO)-phonon resonant structures were discerned in the photoluminescence spectra under the CdS selective excitation, especially under nearly resonant excitation conditions. Strong energy selectivity among the Gaussian distributed energy levels of the QDs are observed in energy relaxation processes, in which excitons are dominantly injected into the QDs whose ground state energies with respect to the excitation energy are equal to the multi-LO-phonon energy of ZnSe. Detection-energy dependent photoluminescence excitation (PLE) measurements also suggest that the coupling strength between the excitons and LO phonons is strongly size-dependent, i.e., coupling is strongly enhanced in smaller QDs. In addition, type-II band alignment of the CdS/ZnSe heterostructure is experimentally confirmed directly by PLE measurements. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
