We report on a room temperature polarization-independent intersubband photocurrent (PC) in quantum-well infrared photodetector based on a GaInAsN/GaAs standard multiple-quantum-well structure. The dominant room temperature PC is peaked at 1.42 μm with peak responsivity of 2 A/W and exhibits similar intensities in TM and TE polarizations. The structure’s energy levels were analyzed using a ten band k·p model. As a result of this analysis the 1.42 μm dominant PC transition is attributed to a transition from the fundamental E1- electron level into the localized quasicontinuum state formed by the unconfined E2+ electron energy level.

    A variant of statement of the problem on highly excited states of an electron (Rydberg states in the limit) in the field of nuclei has been considered. It has been shown that this problem can be reduced to the one-center problem with a variable positive charge. The general solution can be found...

    We consider the nonrelativistic four-boson system in two dimensions interacting via a short-range attractive potential. For a weakly attractive potential with one shallow two-body bound state with binding energyB2, the binding energiesB N of shallowN-body bound states are universal and thus do...
