    In view of the fact that the bandwidth required in optical fiber communication systems will exceed 100 Gb s-1, ultrafast optical switching and modulation devices with high efficiency must be developed. Given that intersubband transitions (ISBT) in quantum wells (QWs) are one of the important...
