Optical properties induced by two major effects, potential fluctuation and piezoelectric fields, have been assessed to interpret the emission mechanism in low-dimensional nitride semiconductors because the former leads to the exciton/carrier localization, and the latter to the quantum confined Stark effect (QCSE). Degenerated white-light pump-and-probe spectroscopy has been employed to assess which factor plays an important role in the series of In xGa1-xN multiple quantum well (MQW) structures whose well widths are 3 nm, 5 nm and 10 nm. Moreover, photoluminescence (PL) mapping with scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) has revealed the dense distribution of island-like structures, the size of which ranges from 20 nm to 70 nm in a 3 nm-thick InxGa1-xN single quantum well (SQW) structure emitting at blue spectral region.
