Photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy and carrier lifetime measurement has been used to characterize optical properties of defects in the low-temperature (LT) grown GaAs/AlGaAs multiple quantum well structures. Two sets of samples were grown at 400 °C by molecular beam epitaxy on nominal (001) and miscut [4° off (001) towards (111) A] GaAs substrates, respectively. After growth, samples were subjected to 30 s rapid thermal annealing at 600–800 °C. It is found that after annealing, two defect-related PL features appear in the samples grown on nominal (001) GaAs substrates, but not in those grown on miscut (001) GaAs substrates. The carrier lifetimes are about 31 and 5 ps in as-grown samples grown on nominal and miscut (001) GaAs substrates, respectively. The different PL spectra and carrier lifetimes in two sets of samples are attributed to different structures of the AsGa-like defects formed during LT growth. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
