    The optical properties of an InAsP/InP quantum well grown on a SrTiO3(001) substrate are analyzed. At 13 K, the photoluminescence yield of the well is comparable to that of a reference well grown on an InP substrate. Increasing the temperature leads to the activation of nonradiative mechanisms...

    The optical properties of n-doped In[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As/AlAs pseudomorphic quantum wells grown on GaAs(001) are investigated as a function of layer thickness and indium concentration.
