FIG. 2.

Low-temperature (4 K) photoluminescence of semipolar (top) and polar (bottom) GaN/AlN QWs. The dashed line indicates the GaN band gap.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

Photoluminescence energy calculated as a function of QW thickness and strain state for polar and semipolar QWs.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Intersubband absorption spectra for semipolar (top) and polar (bottom) GaN/AlN QWs with different well thicknesses. The spectrum labeled with a star has been obtained by photoinduced absorption measurement.
