    A way of analyzing the data in a variable stripe length method gain experiment is presented. We confirm that the stripe length dependence of the gain in In[sub 0.02]Ga[sub 0.98]N/In[sub 0.16]Ga[sub 0.84]N multiple quantum wells is caused by the change of the chemical potential along the excited...
