Abstract
Internal quantum efficiency (IQE) is usually estimated from temperature dependence of photoluminescence (PL) intensity by assuming that the IQE at cryogenic temperature is unity. III-nitride samples, however, usually have large defect-density, and the assumption is not necessarily valid. In this study, we developed a new method to estimate accurate IQE values by simultaneous PL and photo-acoustic (PA) measurements, and demonstratively evaluated the IQE values for various GaN samples. The results show that the conventional method cannot give accurate IQE values for low-quality samples although it can be valid for high-quality samples, and that our method can always give accurate values.
