We report on external electric field dependence of recombination lifetimes in polar InGaN/GaN quantum heterostructures. In our study, we apply external electric fields one order of magnitude less than and in opposite direction to the polarization-induced electrostatic fields inside the well layers. Under the increasing external electric field, we observe a decrease in carrier lifetimes (τ) and radiative recombination lifetimes (τr), latter showing a weaker dependence. Our results on τr show an agreement with our transfer matrix method based simulation results and demonstrate Fermi's golden rule in polar InGaN/GaN quantum heterostructures dependent on electric field. For our study, we grew 5 pairs of 2.5 nm thick In0.15Ga 0.85N quantum well and 7.5 nm thick GaN barrier layers in a p-i-n diode architecture using metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) on a c-plane sapphire substrate. Devices with 300 μm × 300 μm mesa size were fabricated using standard photolithography, reactive ion etching and metallization steps. We used indium-tin oxide (ITO) based semi-transparent contacts in top (p-GaN) layer for uniform application of electric field across the well layers. The fabricated devices were diced and mounted on a TO-can for compact testing. © 2009 IEEE.

Saghaei, T.; Moradi, A.-R.; Shirsavar, R.; Habibi, M. (American Institute of Physics Inc., 2015)In this paper, we induce rotation in a bulk of polar liquid with one free surface, by applying external crossed electric fields. We show that the induced rotation is due to the imposed stresses at the free surface of the ...
