ABSTRACT
Strongly enhanced lateral diffusion of photogenerated carriers was directly observed in the luminescent image of the InGaN/GaN quantum wells. Such an effect was quantitatively modeled using diffusion equation and the ambipolar diffusion coefficient derived by K. H. Gulden and his co-workers [Phys. Rev. Lett. 66, 373 (1991)]. Our simulation shows that the vertical piezoelectric field existing in strained InGaN/GaN quantum wells is the original “driving force” for the enhancement of lateral diffusion. Influence of the density of photogenerated carriers and their average mobility on the enhancement was discussed.
