Abstract

We present excitation and luminescence spectra of (Al, Ga)As quantum wells grown in three different crystal orientations ((001), (310) and (111B)). The features in these spectra are assigned using an eight-band k.p bandstructure calculation and effective-mass type of calculations of the excitonic binding energy, yielding detailed information concerning the GaAs valence-band anisotropy and exciton mixing phenomena.
