A time-resolved photoluminescence study of strained and unstrained InGaAsP/InP double heterostructures has been performed at low photogenerated carrier densities (i.e.=1016 cm-3) using a novel high-efficiency germanium photoncounting detector. The photoluminescence decay times are observed to decrease with increasing strain. Samples grown on substrates with lattice orientation (3 1 1)B are shown to have shorter excess carrier lifetimes than those grown on lattices orientated (0 0 1) or (3 1 1)A.
