    We show that proper doping of the barrier regions can convert the well-known type-II InAs/AlSb quantum wells (QWs) to type I, producing strong interband transitions comparable to regular type-I QWs. The interband gain for TM mode is as high as 4000 1/cm, thus providing an important alternative...

    Carrier lifetime in InxGa1-xAs (x=0.2, 0.25, 0.3) quantum well laser with InGaAsP (Eg=1.55, 1.59eV) barrier/waveguide layers is longer than that in InxGa1-xAs (x=0.14, 0.18, 031) quantum well lasers with GaAs (Eg=1.42eV) barrier/waveguide layers, which is because of the higher injection ratio...

    Carrier distributions governed by hole transport in InGaN/GaN multiple quantum well (MQW) visible light-emitting diodes (LEDs) were investigated using conventional blue LEDs and dual-wavelength blue-green LEDs. It was found that holes were dominantly distributed in the QW close to the p-GaN...

    We report on a technique we have recently developed to fabricate very high quality gates and gated structures on InAs/Al[sub x]Ga[sub 1-x]Sb quantum wells. The low thermal budget process leads to highly stable gates with extremely low leakage currents. Both electron and hole concentrations can...

    We study the optical output power of a semiconductor laser, which exploits tunneling-injection of electrons and holes into quantum dots (QDs) from two separate quantum wells. Even if there is out-tunneling leakage of carriers from QDs, the intensity of parasitic recombination outside QDs remains...
