    Luminescence spectra from quantum wells are routinely interpreted in terms of atomically smooth and atomically abrupt interfaces. Here we show that this interpretation is inconsistent with photoluminescence, photoluminescence excitation, and quantitative microscopic (chemical lattice imaging)...

    We have used time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) to examine light-emitting diodes made of InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) before the final stages of processing. The time-resolved photoluminescence from a dim MQW was quenched by nonradiative recombination centers. The PL kinetics from a...

    Anisotropic property of type-II GaAs/GaAsSb heterostructures was studied by photoluminescence (PL) and photoconductivity (PC). It was found that the PL and PC spectra exhibit a strong in-plane polarization with respect to 〈011〉 axis with polarization degrees up to 40%. We showed...
