Radiative and nonradiative excitonic transitions in nonpolar (112¯0) AlxGa1-xN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) grown on the GaN template prepared by lateral epitaxial overgrowth (LEO-GaN) were investigated. The structural advantages of using nonpolar orientations were confirmed by a moderate shift of the photoluminescence (PL) peak energy and negligible change in low-temperature PL lifetime with decreasing GaN well width, both of which are the results of eliminating quantum-confined Stark effects due to the polarization fields that exist in polar (0001) MQWs. Appearance of the correct in-plane light polarization and improved internal quantum efficiency for the PL peak in the MQWs on LEO-GaN were attributed to the reduction in densities of nonradiative defects and bound states. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
