    • Abstract

       

      The temperature-dependent PL properties of GaN-rich In𝑥Ga1−𝑥N alloys is investigated and 𝑆-shaped temperature dependence is observed in all InGaN samples. It is found that the origin of localization effect in samples A and B are different from that in sample C. For samples A and B, In content fluctuations should be the origin of localization effect, while the localization effect can be attributed to In-rich clusters and metallic indium inclusions for sample C. In addition, the band-tail model is modified and the modified band-tail model is used to investigate the degree of localization effect in the three samples.
