Photoluminescence spectroscopy in combination with electric‐field‐induced Raman scattering have been used to study the effect of photoexcitation on the surface electric field due to surface trap states in δ‐doped GaAs:Si/Al0.33Ga0.67As double heterostructures. Upon variation of the optical power density over four orders of magnitude a continuous reduction of the surface electric field is found for increasing cw illumination. This is evident from a decrease of the electric‐field‐induced Raman signal and from a high‐energy shift of the photoluminescence due to recombination of electrons at the δ‐doping layer with photogenerated holes localized at the topmost heterointerface. For the highest power densities of ≂103 W/cm2 the electric field at that interface becomes almost zero indicating that band bending due to surface trap states is essentially removed.
