Abstract

The Daresbury synchrotron radiation source (SRS) provides bright, tunable x-rays for scattering and absorption probes of local structure. Scanning confocal microscopy and luminescence decay measurements employ the SRS in alternative ways, as a tunable luminescence excitation engine and as a source of weak, 160 ps pulses with a large pulse-topulse separation, respectively. This report first describes local atomic structure studies of InGaN epilayers by extended x-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS). In addition, we report photoluminescence (PL) imaging, PL microspectroscopy and photoluminescence decay studies of various nitride samples, including tailored InGaN quantum wells and discs.
