Submicron spatial resolution photoluminescence is used to assess radiative efficiency and spatial uniformity of GaN/InGaN heterojunctions. Room temperature photoluminescence of multiple InGaN quantum wells with GaN barriers fabricated by electron-cyclotron resonance assisted molecular beam epitaxy was measured as a function of position on a facet perpendicular to the layer structure. Our high resolution studies reveal that the radiative recombination for the InGaN quantum wells is 50-60 times more efficient than for the underlying GaN film.
