We have performed photoluminescence measurements probing the strain in a set of In0.10Ga0.90As/GaAs multiquantum well (MQW) samples. By using different continuous wave pump laser wavelengths we obtain a depth profile of strain in individual quantum wells within the MQW structure. We also present evidence for the existence of an equilibrium strain between In0.10Ga0.90As quantum well layers and GaAs barrier layers for thick strain-relaxed MQW structures.
