    We show that the emission characteristics of InGaN/GaN quantum wells under hydrostatic pressure are strongly influenced by the built-in piezoelectric field. The dominant role of the piezoelectric field is established from the dramatic increase of the photoluminescence decay time with pressure...

    Based on the dielectric continuum phonon model, uniaxial model and force balance equation the mobility of two dimensional electron gas in wurtzite AlxGa1-xN/GaN/AlxGa1-xN quantum wells is discussed theoretically within the temperature range dominated by optical phonons. The dependences of the...
