    Abstract

    Instabilities of light emission and also of stimulated emission in series of GaN epilayers and InGaN quantum well structures, including laser diode structures, are studied. A stimulated emission is observed under electron beam pumping. This enabled us to study light emission properties from laser structures and their relation to microstructure details. We demonstrate large in-plane fluctuations of light emission and that these fluctuations are also present for excitation densities larger than the threshold densities for the stimulated emission.
