    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...
