    In the absorption spectra of the hexagonal single-crystal manganite HoMnO3 in the paramagnetic ferroelectric state, lines near 1.1 and 2.0 μm were observed associated with the transitions 5 I8 → 5 I6 and 5 I8 → 5 I7, respectively, within the 4 f10 configuration of the Ho3+ ion....

    Linearity is an important property of optical devices in analog communication systems. In this paper, we study the 3rd-order intermodulation distortion (IMD3) of an InP/InGaAsP multiple-quantum-well (MQW) traveling-wave type electroabsorption modulator (TW-EAM). We observe that dips in the...

    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...

    The electronic structure, electron g factor, and Stark effect of InAs1-xNx quantum dots are studied by using the ten-band k·p model. It is found that the g factor can be tuned to be zero by the shape and size of quantum dots, nitrogen (N) doping, and the electric field. The N doping has two...

    We have studied the exciton spin relaxation times in InxGa1-xN/GaN multiquantum wells as a function of well width and indium concentration for temperatures from 10 to 180 K. Well widths from 2 to 8 nm and indium concentrations from x=0.02 to 0.15 have been investigated. In contrast to 1 nm wide...

    We discuss an ultrawide, voltage-tunable type-II mid-IR interband cascade laser. Its design has a charge accumulation layers outside of the optically active quantum wells that unclamps the electron-hole concentrations and facilitates above-threshold Stark shifts. Our results demonstrate laser...

    This study presents the green InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells light-emitting diodes (LEDs) grown on a GaN nanorods template with SiO2 nanomasks by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition. By nanoscale epitaxial lateral overgrowth, microscale air voids were formed between nanorods and the...

    Conventional InGaN/GaN light-emitting diodes based on planar quantum well structures do not allow for efficient long-wavelength operation beyond the blue region due to a strong quantum confined Stark effect in lattice-mismatched polar InGaN quantum wells. Here we overcome the limitation by using...
