Time resolved photoluminescence of double quantum well structure was investigated versus electric and magnetic fields applied across the sample. The emission due to direct excitons (electron and hole are localized within the same quantum well) decays fast at the nanosecond timescale, whereas the recombination kinetics of indirect excitons is much slower and spreads over microseconds. The time evolution of indirect exciton emission is shown to be altered by application of either electric or magnetic field. This reflects the non-trivial effects of exciton localization which leads to the non- exponential decays of the indirect exciton emission.
