ABSTRACT
Photoluminescence excitation measurements were performed on GaxIn1-xAsyP1-y/InP single quantum wells. The results were analyzed with a k·p approach. Using the effective masses reported in the literature, the ratio of the discontinuities in the conduction and valence band is found to be 35:65. This is in good agreement with a ratio of 37:63, obtained directly from an observed transition involving free holes.
