Abstract

A systematic study of photoluminescence (PL) and time-resolved PL spectra from In0.15Ga0.85N/In0.015Ga0.985N quantum wells (QWs) with different Si doping concentration in the barriers has been carried out. As the Si doping concentration increases, the PL emission intensity was increased and the PL peak energy was blueshifted. The energy separation between the spontaneous emission (SPE) and stimulated emission (SE) peaks decrease with increasing Si doping concentration. We also observed that the slow decay time τ2 in the QWs decreases with increasing Si doping concentration, from ∼ 130 ns for [Si] = 2 × 1018 cm−3 to ∼ 30 ns for [Si] = 1 × 1019 cm−3. The PL emission peak shifts to lower energies with delay time after a pulsed excitation and this shift decreases with increasing Si doping concentration. The increased recombination rate, the decrease of peak shift with delay time, and the reduced separation between the SPE and SE peaks with increasing Si doping concentration are attributed to the screening of piezoelectric field by carriers originated from Si doped barriers.
