Abstract

The mechanism behind the improved light emission properties of semipolar and nonpolar InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) conformally grown over n-GaN nanowires (NWs) was studied using variable-temperature photoluminescence and time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL). A reduced internal polarization electric field was found to account for the observed enhancement in the radiative recombination rate and internal quantum efficiency of the MQWs on NWs. Additionally, the excitation-dependent TRPL results indicate a significantly depressed Auger recombination in MQWs grown on NWs that can be attributed to the feature of ultralow dislocation density of the MQWs grown over GaN nanostructures.
