Far‐infrared magneto‐optical spectroscopy has been used to investigate the negative persistent photoconductivity (NPPC) effect in InAs/Al0.5Ga0.5Sb quantum wells at low temperatures. After an in situ cross‐gap illumination, the electron density in the InAs well is reduced by about 28%, and the cyclotron effective mass decreases from (0.0342±0.0002)m0 to (0.0322±0.0002)m0. The time scale for the NPPC buildup transient determined from the results of a photon‐dose experiment is on the order of 10 ms with an illumination power flux of ∼10 mW/cm2.
