Abstract

Low temperature cathodoluminescence has been used to investigate the spatial characteristics of light emission in In xGa 1-xN single quantum wells. High spatial resolution, narrow band pass imaging shows the luminescence to be strongly inhomogeneous in wavelength as well as in intensity on a sub-micron scale. Cathodoluminescence spectra correlate favorably with photoluminescence spectra. However, when spectra are recorded from different areas in spot mode, the quantum emission varies significantly in wavelength. The observed variations are consistent with composition inhomogeneities in the quantum well.
