It is shown that the occurrence of magnetic polaron formation can have an appreciable influence on the values of the diffusion constants deduced from observations of the photoluminescence in diffused magnetic quantum-well structures. Arguments are presented that show that photoluminescence excitation spectroscopy provides several independent, more accurate measurements from which the diffusion constants can be more reliably estimated.
