The capture and emission dynamics of deep levels in GaAs/Ga1-xAlxAs multiple quantum well structures are investigated by using the photoinduced transient spectroscopy technique, In nominally undoped samples three trapping levels with activation energies in the range between 0.4 and 0.8 eV are observed. These are compared with the observations based on other conventional techniques. Large capture cross sections associated with the trapping centers implies that the presence of these can be detrimental for the high speed operation of optoelectronic devices based on GaAs/Ga1-xAlxAs quantum well structures.
