    We have employed photoluminescence spectroscopy to determine the temperature dependence of the interdiffusion coefficient of Al and Ga in GaAs/Al0.3Ga0.7As quantum wells. The position of the photoluminescence peaks, due to the n=1 electron to heavy-hole transition, was measured before and after...
