Optical characterization of cubic AlGaN/GaN quantum wells
MetadataShow full item record
Cubic phase group III-nitrides were grown using RF plasma assisted Molecular Beam Epitaxy on GaAs (001) substrates. High-resolution X-ray diffraction, photoluminescence, cathodoluminescence and photoreflectance measurements were employed to characterize the structural and optical properties of GaN/AlxGa1-xN Multi Quantum Well (MQW) structures, in which both Aluminum content and well widths were varied. The observed quantized states are in agreement with first-principles based theoretical calculations.
