Abstract [en]

We report results from investigation of the optical properties of GaNAs/GaAs quantum well structures. The structures were grown by molecular-beam epitaxy at different temperatures, and subsequently postgrowth thermal treatments at different temperature were performed. The results show that the carrier localization is smaller in a structure grown at a temperature of 580 degrees C in comparison with a structure grown at 450 degrees C. Both structures also show a broaden deep level emission band. Furthermore, the deep level emission band and the carrier localization effect can be removed by thermal annealing at 650 degrees C in the structure grown at 450 degrees C. The structure quality and radiative recombination efficiency are significantly improved after annealing. However, annealing under the same condition has a negligible effect on the structure grown at 580 degrees C. (C) 2005 American Institute of Physics.
