    We have observed an extremely narrow absorption spectrum due to bound-to-continuum transition in GaAs/Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]As multiple quantum wells (MQWs). Its linewidth is only about one tenth of the values reported previously. Our calculation indicates that the broadening of the excited state...
