ABSTRACT
We report electrical transport data for holes in single strained quantum well structures of the type GaAs/InxGa1-xAs/GaAs with x≊0.2. With modulation doping, 4 K mobilities of ∼3×104 cm2/V s have been achieved. This value is near that attained for electrons in comparable structures, illustrating the enhanced transport possible due to the strain-induced light-hole planar mass.
