Hot-exciton luminescence phenomena are investigated in a ZnTe/MnTe single-quantum-well structure where tunneling through thin MnTe barriers suppresses the formation of thermalized luminescence. The longitudinal-optical- phonon-modulated recombination spectra are excitonic in nature and show strong resonance enhancement at energies that lie within localized states below the n=1 exciton.
