Abstract

The intersubband absorption in square and graded quantum wells under a laser field is calculated within the framework of the effective mass approximation. We conclude that, for quantum wells with different shapes, the laser field amplitude induces an important effect on the electronic and optical properties of the semiconductor structure. This gives a new degree of freedom in various device applications based on the intersubband transition of electrons. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
