This Letter reports experimental evidence for the existence of localized excitons at above-barrier energies in type-I superlattices. By using magnetoabsorption measurement on a series of Zn0.86Cd0.14Se/Zn0.75Mn0.25Se superlattices, where the subbands localized in nonmagnetic and magnetic layers undergo drastically different Zeeman splittings, we show conclusively that above-barrier excitons are localized in the barrier rather than in the well regions.
