In this work we present a study of spatial and temperature dependencies of carrier lifetime and photoluminescence in pseudomorphic Ge Sn layer on silicon by applying contactless time-resolved differential absorption and photoluminescence techniques. The observed small lifetime and photoluminescence intensity spatial variations (~10%) indicate for good material homogeneity. Differential transmission kinetics exhibit fast bleaching and slow absorption components related to thermalization (few hundreds of picoseconds) and surface recombination (few tens of nanoseconds) processes. Temperature dependent photo-luminescence measurements indicate activation of carriers from L to Γ valley, governing dominant direct photoluminescence emission band at 1850 nm at 300 K. These direct transitions explain more efficient and blue-shifted by 150 nm photoluminescence emission at room temperature. At low temperatures direct emission is related to non-thermalized carriers, while indirect one is caused by depopulation of light hole band with temperature. 0.95 0.05
