Time-resolved optical characterization is an indispensable tool to study the recombination mechanisms of excitons and/or carriers based on radiative, non-radiative, localization and many-body processes. In this paper, we review the instrumentation of various spectroscopic techniques for the assessment of InxGa1-xN-based semiconductors such as time-resolved photoluminescence (TRPL), time-resolved electroluminescence (TREL), transient grating (TG) method to probe photothermal processes, microscopic TRPL using optical microscope, submicroscopic TRPL using scanning near field optical microscopy (SNOM) and pump-and-probe spectroscopy for the measurement of transient absorption/gain spectra. The obtained results are cited in the references.
