    Current-modulated electroluminescence spectroscopy was developed to investigate the mechanism of the current-induced spectral blueshift in InGaN single-quantum-well blue and green light-emitting diodes. The evidence was obtained that tail states exist in InGaN active layers, and also the blueshift was found to be dominated by the tail-state filling effect.
