Piezoelectric fields built in I $n_{x}$G $a_1$$_{-x}$N/GaN (x=0.06∼0.1) quantum wells (QWs) have been estimated by comparing the transition energies, both calculated and measured by photoluminescence (PL). The calculation was numerically carried out with a rectangular QW model, where the effective bandgap considering a bowing facto, energy levels quantized for the lowest lying electrons and heavy holes (1e-lhh), and biaxial compressive strain were included except for the piezoelectric fields. The calculated values were observed to be larger (9∼15 meV) than the measured values by PL, which was considered to be caused by the piezoelectric fields built in InGaN/GaN QW interface. In addition, we observed the energy shift by measuring the EPDPL (excitation power-dependent PL), which was compared with the energy difference caused by the piezoelectric fields.
