  • The electric-field-dependent spectral properties of a GaAs graded-barrier quantum-well heterostructure laser are measured for the first time. Data presented show that the electroabsorption below the band gap is due to states in the confinement layers perturbed by the quantum well under high field conditions. This effect, which is intermediary between the quantum confined Stark effect and bulk Franz Keldysh effect, should be present in all quantum well system with shallow wells in short, high field-depletion regions.

Data are presented which show that the electroabsorption below the band gap is due to states in the confinement layers which are perturbed by the quantum well under high field conditions. This effect, which is intermediary between the quantum confined Stark effect and bulk Franz--Keldysh effect, should be present in all quantum well systems with shallow wells in short, high field depletion regions.
  • The nonlinear saturation of the excitonic absorbtion in a GaAs-In{sub {ital x}}Ga{sub 1{minus}{ital x}}As multiple quantum well sample consisting of 80 wells was investigated in the vicinity of the excitonic resonance at 991 nm using a tunable titanium sapphire laser probe. This characterization yields a saturation intensity of less than 50 kW/cm{sup 2} and a maximum off-resonance nonlinear refractive index of 6.42--10{sup {minus}7} cm{sup 2}/W. This dispersion can lead to practical optically bistable etalons fabricated from these multiple quantum well structures.
  • The authors investigate the effect of intermixing in InGaAs/GaAs quantum well structure using Cu-doped SiO{sub 2}. The incorporation of Cu into the silica film yields larger bandgap shift than typical impurity-free vacancy diffusion (IFVD) method at a lower activation temperature. We also observe enhancement of the photoluminescence (PL) signal from the intermixed InGaAs/GaAs quantum well structure after being cycle-annealed at 850 C.
