Abstract
The exciton dynamics in InxGa1-xAs/GaAs quantum wells grown on (111)B and ( 100) GaAs substrates were studied by time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) u nder magnetic fields in a Faraday configuration. We have found that the pie zoelectric fields in (111)B samples affect the transient behavior of the PL spectra. Compared with the reference (100) sample, we have found that the strong piezoelectric fields, as well as the magnetic fields, cause a slower spin-flip process in (111)B strained quantum wells.
