The photoluminescence characteristics of GaInNAs quantum wells (QWs) after high temperature annealing were discussed. The QWs were grown using radio-freqency nitorgen plasma source. It was found that annealing at 840°C for 10 min improved the GaInNAs QW quality. The results were supported by evidence from PL and XRD measurements. It was suggested that residual strain-induced GaAs/GaInAs/GaAs interface diffusion and defect-assisted diffusion are the mechanisms responsible for blueshift of photoluminescence peak wavelength in GaInAs QWs.
