The exact binding energies of excitons in novel type-II In1-xGaxAs/GaSb1-xAsy quantum well materials in the effective mass model are evaluated by diffusion quantum Monte Carlo simulations. The results support the experimental interpretation that a stable excitonic ground state can exist in spatially separated electron-hole systems. The electron(hole) correlation effects and quantum confinement are shown to enhance the binding of the excitons. The calculated results for various magnetic fields provide a guide for further experiments in accurate determination of the binding energies, which is important in the optoelectronic application of novel quantum well materials.
