Time-resolved photoluminescence TRPL spectroscopy has been utilized by various groups to determine resonant and nonresonant tunneling times of electrons as well as of holes in asymmetric double quantum well ADWQ structures. The main disadvantage of the TRPL method arises from the fact that it is impossible to measure electron and hole tunneling times simultaneously or to determine hole tunneling times directly in the absence of an electric field. These drawbacks are inherent to the linear TRPL technique since the photoluminescence PL decay time of the narrow quantum well QWn depends only on the tunneling time of the carrier type which tunnels faster.
