The ambipolar diffusion length and carrier lifetime are measured in AlxGa1−xAs for several mole fractions in the interval 0<x<0.38. These parameters are found to have significantly higher values in the higher mole fraction samples. These increases are attributed to occupation of states in the indirect valleys, and supporting calculations are presented.
