In this study, for double parabolic-square quantum well (DPSQW) the linear and nonlinear intersubband optical absorption coefficients and the refractive index changes are calculated as dependent on the intense laser field (ILF). Our results show that the location and the size of all absorption coefficients and refractive index changes depend on ILF. Also, we show that ILF provides an important effect on the electronic and optical properties of DPSQW, and the changes of the energy levels and the dipole moment matrix elements are dependent on the shape of the confinement potential. Such effects can provide methods to drive tunable semiconductor lasers, which may be tailored by quantum potential well parameters and by ILF values.
