We describe an approach to detect the presence of a nonuniform distribution of carriers between the different wells of multi-quantum-well laser diodes by measuring the gain and spontaneous emission spectra and demonstrate its application to a five-well sample that has a nonuniform carrier distribution at low temperatures
