Abstract

We report on the effect of thermal annealing on the photoluminescence properties of a Ga0.65In0.35N0.02As0.98/GaAs single quantum well. Thermal annealing is shown to decrease the strong nitrogen-induced localization effects observed at low temperatures and to reduce the full width at half maximum of the emission peak. It also induces a strong blue shift of the emission peak energy, which is thought not to arise from an In-Ga interdiffusion alone, as it is much larger than in a nitrogen-free reference single quantum well.
