Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

We report the photoluminescence characterization of a series InNAs/InGaAs multi-quantum wells (MQWs) of various N content on InP substrates. The emission wavelength of these QWs can be tuned effectively by N content. However, the bowing effect is weaker than in GaNAs and GaInNAs. The optical properties of these hetero-structures are closely related to quality of the interface between the barriers and the QWs which is influenced by N content. Two effects of N in this material system have been clarified. On the one hand, the incorporation of N into InAs matrix is beneficial as far as the reduction of band-gap and the lattice constant are concerned. On the other hand, the PL efficiency increases dramatically with the increase of N content. Optimized design and growth could be achieved by trading off between these two effects.
