ABSTRACT
Adaptive quantum design is used to identify broken-symmetry quantum-well potential profiles with optical response properties superior to previous ad hoc solutions. This technique performs an unbiased stochastic search of configuration space. It allows us to engineer many-body excitonic wave functions and thus provides a new methodology to efficiently develop optimized quantum-confined Stark effect device structures.

    Many spin-polarized-based devices utilize the optical polarization from semiconductor quantum wells (QWs) as a read out. Under ideal conditions at zero crystal momentum, 100% optical polarization is obtained from these QWs for fully polarized electrons. However, carrier populations typically...
