Experimental results on a new method of plasma enhanced quantum well intermixing is presented. Using nitrogen plasma treatment followed by rapid thermal annealing, a 100nm-blueshift of photoluminescence peak is obtained. The new method has much weaker side-effect of etching than previously reported method using Argon plasma.
