Abstract—The manifestation of the piezoelectric effect in the photoluminescence spectra of superlattices with elastically strained {InxGa1 â€“ xAs/GaAs} quantum wells grown by molecular-beam epitaxy on GaAs substrates with the crystallographic surface orientations (100), (110), and (111)A is reported.
