Title: Spectrum of an electron in a quantum well in high inclined magnetic field and high transverse electric field

Abstract

The energy and wave functions of localized electron states in a quantum well in a high magnetic field arbitrarily oriented with respect to the layers of the structure, and a high transverse electric field are studied. The situation where the quantum-confined energy and the Landau energy are close to each other is considered. The evolution of the spectrum with varying orientation of the magnetic field over the entire angle range is studied.

  • The field spectrum linewidth of a multiple quantum well laser immersed in a high magnetic field is measured at room temperature and at 165 K. The low-temperature measurements show a decrease of linewidth with increasing magnetic field. We believe this behavior results from the formation of a totally discrete electronic state space. Measurements of the low-temperature luminescence spectrum show that the emission is split into two peaks by the high field with the higher energy peak responsible for lasing action.
  • In this paper the effect of a transverse magnetic field on buoyancy-driven convection in an inclined two-dimensional cavity is studied analytically and numerically. A constant heat flux is applied for heating and cooling the two opposing walls while the other two walls are insulated. The governing equations are solved analytically, in the limit of a thin layer, using a parallel flow approximation and an integral form of the energy equation. Solutions for the flow fields, temperature distributions, and Nusselt numbers are obtained explicitly in terms of the Rayleigh and Hartmann numbers and the angle of inclination of the cavity. Inmore » the high Hartmann number limit it is demonstrated that the resulting solution is equivalent to that obtained for a porous layer on the basis of Darcy's model. In the low Hartmann number limit the solution for a fluid layer in the absence of a magnetic force is recovered. In the case of a horizontal layer heated from below the critical Rayleigh number for the onset of convection is derived in term of the Hartmann number. A good agreement is found between the analytical predictions and the numerical simulation of the full governing equations. 23 refs., 8 figs.« less
  • The Kubo formula is used to provide an initial expression for D/sub x/x. A correlation function for the electric field is introduced in the self-consistent field approximation. The Dreizin-Dykhne law D/sub x//sub x/ = 1.2((..pi../6)(c/sup 2//H/sup 2/) (k/sub B/T/q)/sup 2/<(deltan/n)>1/D/sup 1/2//sub z/z)/sup 2/3/ is derived for the case of fields produced by density irregularities in semiconductors (the constant 2 is valid for a Gaussian correlation function). An expression is derived for the anomalous electron diffusion coefficient (heat conductivity) associated with plasma turbulence in tokamaks. For particles drifting through the system, D/sub perpendicular/approx.H/sup -2/, while for trapped particles the equation D/submore » perpendicular/approx.(c/H)h/sub B/Te/q(<(deltan/n)/sup 2/>)/sup 1/2/ (Bohm diffusion) is derived. If available measurements of the change deltan/n are used, the values calculated for tau/sub E/e are found to have the same order of magnitude as the experimental results.« less
  • For the first time, we show that an oscillatory enhancement of low temperature electron mobility μ can be achieved in an asymmetric GaAs/Al{sub x}Ga{sub 1−x}As wide quantum well structure by applying an external electric field F perpendicular to the interface plane. We show that the oscillating nature of μ as a function of F is mostly due to the contribution of the higher subband through intersubband effects when there is double subband occupancy. We further show that the wavy nature of μ can be enhanced by increasing the well width, surface electron density, and also by considering a double quantummore » well structure. Our results can be utilized for low temperature device applications.« less
