Abstract

Ultrafast differential transmission spectroscopy was employed to study the carrier dynamics in InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells with high inverted hexagonal pits density due to threading dislocation. By monitoring the temporal evolution of the excitonic absorption spectrum, a reduction of the quantum-confinement Stark shift was observed due to the photo-induced in-well field screening at low carrier densities and excitonic absorption quenching at high carrier densities. By comparing the differential absorption spectra at various injected carrier densities, the in-well field screening effect was distinguished from excitonic bleaching.
