    Thermally stimulated resonant current peaks are observed in Al0.4Ga0.6As/GaAs triple barrier diodes. These current peaks are interpreted as resonant tunnelings from the first excited electron subband in the first well to the first excited subband and to the second excited subband in the second...

    A novel self-aligned buried-ridge striped planar (BRSP) GaAlAs/GaAs diode laser structure is presented. The structure was grown by two-step liquid phase epitaxy using preferential growth and melt etch. A Ga1-y Aly As layer with a wide range of Al concentration (y>0.05) is selectively grown...

    We report successful fabrication of GaAs/Al0.26Ga0.74As double-heterostructure laser diodes grown on patterned Si substrates by molecular beam epitaxy. The patterned substrates consist of exposed Si stripes with widths ranging from 9 to 70 μm and surrounded by 900 Å of SiN films on both...

    We generate indistinguishable photons from a semiconductor diode containing an InGaAs/GaAs quantum dot. By using an all-electrical technique to populate and control a single-photon emitting state, we filter out dephasing by Stark shifting the emission energy on time scales below the dephasing...

    The possibility of controlling the effective lifetime of nonequilibrium carriers by varying the lattice mismatch between the interfaced materials of a heterostructure has been studied on the example of InGaAs/GaAs heterostructures. It was found that, at a given composition (thickness) of a...

    We report a method for tuning a split-ring resonator (SRR) using infrared light. The SRR unit cells are commonly used in arrays to form a metamaterial that exhibits an effective negative permeability and are often used in negative-refractive-index materials. The region of negative permeability...
