Paper Abstract

A knowledge of the energy-band energies and masses are important parameters for the design of semiconductor lasers and light-emitting diodes. We present results of a magnetoluminescence study on n-type InGaAs/InAlAs multiple quantum wells lattice matched to InP. From an analysis of low-temperature magnetoluminescence data, a simultaneous measurement of the in-plane conduction and valence-band masses is made. We find, assuming parabolic bands, that the conduction and valence-band masses are respectively mc approximately equals 0.069 m0 and mv approximately equals 0.061 m0, where m0 is the free electron mass. Fitting a nonparabolic conduction-band dispersion curve to the data yields a zone- center mass mc approximately equals 0.056 m0 and mv approximately 0.102 m0.
