    The nonlinear optical absorption in a three-subband step asymmetric semiconductor quantum well driven by a strong terahertz (THz) field is investigated theoretically by employing the intersubband semiconductor-Bloch equations. We show that the optical absorption spectrum strongly depends on the...

    We report on the temperature dependent capacitance-voltage measurements on InP/GaAs ultrathin quantum well (QW). We observe a peak in apparent carrier distribution (ACD) profile at around the geometrical position of the QW. Peak value of the ACD profile increases, while it's width decreases with...
