Cubic GaN paper chosen as Editor’s Pick

Our recent paper on polarized surface photoluminescence from cubic InGaN/GaN MQWs has been chosen as an editor’s pick by APL. In this joined work between the David Binks group at the University of Manchester and us, we suggest that polarization effects from cubic InGaN/GaN MQWs might be related to recombination in quantum...
