    This second part presents a comprehensive overview of fundamental optical properties of the III Nitride Semiconductor. All optoelectronic applications based on III-nitrides are due to their unique optical properties and characterizations of III-nitrides. Much information, which is critical to the design and improvement of optoelectronic devices based on III-nitrides has been obtained in the last several years. This is the second of a two part Volume in the seriesOptoelectronic Properties of Semiconductors and Superlattices.

    Chapter One: Optical Spectroscopy of Highly Excited Group III-Nitrides
    Chapter Two: Optical Constraints of III-Nitrides-Experiments
    Chapter Three: Optical Functions of III-Nitrides-Calculations
    Chapter Four: Interband Optical Transitions in Piezo-Strained InGaN Qunatum Wells
    Chapter Five: Electric Fields in Polarized InGaN/GaN Heterostructures
    Chapter Six: Inter-link Between Structural and Optical Properties of GaN and GaN/AIGaN Heterostructures
    Chapter Seven: LO Phonon Assisted Excition Luminescence Processes in Heteroepitaxial GaN Films
    Chapter Eight: Cubic Phase GaN and AIGaN: Expitaxial Growth and Optical Properties
