A set of (Ga0.77In0.23)As/Ga(NxAs1−x) heterostructures is studied by time-resolved photoluminescence. Four samples with nitrogen concentrations from x=0.48% up to x=2.2% are investigated at different temperatures and with different excitation densities. The experiments suggest that the heterostructure band offset is type I for x=0.48% and type II for x=2.2%. The situation is more complex for x=0.72% and x=1.25%, since these samples are close to the transition from type I to type II. The experimental findings are analyzed using a detailed microscopic theory. Numerical calculations describe the measured data well. In particular, the interpretation of the experimental results concerning the band alignment is confirmed by the theoretical analysis.
