    The high intensity of light emitted in InxGa1-xN/GaN heterostructures has been generally attributed to the formation of indium-rich clusters in InxGa1-xN quantum wells (QWs). However, there is significant disagreement about the existence of such clusters in as-grown InxGa1-xN QWs. We employ...

    The first investigation of nonlinear absorption in InGaAs/InAlAs multiple quantum wells using picosecond and cw infrared lasers is presented. The nonlinearity is demonstrated to be due to plasma-induced excitonic bleaching. The measured saturation densities agree with those predicted by theory.
