Abstract

The band-edge property and built-in electric fields of two different Al x Ga 1 x N Ga N ( Al Ga N Ga N ) heterostructures (HSs) with and without an additional AlGaN inserted layer were studied by thermoreflectance (TR), photoluminescence (PL), and contactless electroreflectance (CER) techniques. The PL spectra characterize the band-edge luminescence property of GaN. Free exciton transitions of AlGaN and GaN were probed experimentally by TR. Prominent Franz–Keldysh oscillations (FKOs) of GaN and the opposite FKO phase of AlGaN were simultaneously detected by the additional AlGaN inserted sample with CER owing to the enhancement effect of built-in electric fields of GaN and AlGaN with the same polarity direction. Optoelectronics properties of the two HSs were characterized by the experimental analyses.
