Electron irradiation of a 1.3-μm-GaInNAs/GaAs multi-quantum-well heterostructure, grown by molecular beam epitaxy and subsequently rapid-thermal annealed, is found to induce much stronger photoluminescence than what is observed for an identical as-grown sample upon annealing. Annealing of the irradiated sample also causes a small additional spectral blueshift and reduces alloy potential energy fluctuations at the conduction band minimum. These irradiation-related phenomena are accompanied by small but discernable changes in x-ray diffraction features upon annealing, which indicate compositional and/or structural changes in the quantum wells.
