ABSTRACT
We report on a monolithic Gires-Tournois semiconductor interferometer used to generate a tunable delay. Controllable saturable absorption in optically pumped multiple-quantum-well semiconductor reflector was shown to provide promising means for rapid changing the group delay of the reflector, and represents an attractive form of dynamic dispersion compensation.

    Gain measurements were performed on buried heterostructure single quantum well lasers to ascertain the transparency current density, which represents a basic limit in the threshold current. By using the optimal design approach, a lowest threshold of 0.55 mA in a 120-μm-long device was...

    The spectral characteristics of intraband absorption on bound-free transitions in semiconductor quantum wells are analyzed. Numerical results indicate that both comparatively narrowband (∼30 meV) and broadband (>=200 meV) absorption may occur, which may be important in infrared detector design.
