Strain and electric field fluctuations in regions of different polarities in GaN/AlGaN quantum well (QW) structures of dominant N-polarity with inversion domains (IDs) split the photoluminescence (PL) emission into two bands. Micro-PL and time-resolved PL studies reveal strong inhomogeneity of the array of the IDs, where essential parameters, such as strain, electric fields, and sizes are fluctuating quantities. We demonstrate also that the ID formation decreases the intrinsic electric field magnitudes.
