    The well-width dependence of intersubband absorption in InGaAs/InAlAs multiquantum wells grown by molecular beam epitaxy is investigated. The energies of the absorption peaks decrease from 300 to 100 meV with an increasing well width from 35 to 200 Ã…. This well-width dependence of the peak...

    We report on ultrafast excitonic nonlinearities in ion-implanted InGaAs/InAlAs multiple quantum wells. We find that irradiation with energetic O[sup +] and Ni[sup +] ions can reduce the carrier lifetime from 1.6 ns down to 1.7 ps without significantly altering the excitonic absorption...

    We report on the optical absorption and modulation characteristics of strained InxGa1-xAs/GaAs(0.1≤x≤0.25) multiple quantum well (MQW) structures grown on GaAs (100) substrates which also included regions of prepatterned mesas. Sharp excitonic features were realized in samples...

    Electroabsorption in an InGaAs/GaAs strained-layer multiple quantum well structure has been observed. With only ten quantum wells, 6.4% transmission modulation was obtained at 0.950 μm with 2 V reverse bias. A single absorption peak was observed, in contrast to the double peak observed in...

    We show that by a proper design and modulation of the composition of a ternary InGaAs quantum well one can considerably alter the optical properties of the system. We demonstrate a novel InGaAs/InP strained-layer heterostructure in which a blue Stark shift of the absorption edge of more than 10...

    Optically pumped stimulated emission (SE) from InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells (MQWs) grown by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition has been systematically studied as a function of excitation length (L[sub exc]). Two distinct SE peaks were observed from these structures: one that originates...

    The absorption and gain for an InGaNAs/GaAs quantum-well structure is calculated and compared to that of a more conventional InGaAs/InGaPAs structure, both lasing in the 1.3 μm range. Despite significant differences in the band structures, the gain value is comparable for high carrier...
