Electroabsorption in an InGaAs/GaAs strained-layer multiple quantum well structure has been observed. With only ten quantum wells, 6.4% transmission modulation was obtained at 0.950 μm with 2 V reverse bias. A single absorption peak was observed, in contrast to the double peak observed in similar GaAs/AlGaAs structures. The present structure is fabricated on a GaAs substrate which is transparent to light at the exciton absorption wavelength.

    Whereas laser emission at 1.55 μm is difficult to realize using type-I InGaAsN quantum wells grown on GaAs, we show that it can be achieved with far fewer restrictions on the growth by employing type-II (In)GaAsN/GaAsSb/(In)GaAsN/GaAs structures having a “W” band alignment. We use...
