Many-body effects have been optically investigated for modulation-doped quantum wells at high acceptor densities. The observed band-gap shrinkage, up to approximate to 20 meV, is consistent with calculations based on the Hartree and random-phase approximations including the finite well width effect. A recombination near the Fermi edge with light-hole character is strikingly enhanced at high acceptor densities. An interpretation based on carrier-carrier interaction is proposed. Finally, the exciton is found to be quenched for hole densities higher than approximate to 2x10(12) cm(-2).
