Özet

In the present study, we theoretically reported the effects of applied external fields, such as intense laser field and electric and magnetic fields, on the optical absorption coefficient and refractive index changes in the Tietz-Hua potential quantum well by the compact density-matrix approach. For this, we first calculated the subband energy levels and their corresponding electronic wave functions of the structure by solving the one-dimensional Schrodinger equation within the framework of the effective mass and envelope wave function approximations. Our theoretical results show that the optical absorption coefficient and refractive index changes in the Tietz-Hua potential quantum well are sensitive to the applied external fields. The absorption spectra in the structure can be adjusted depending on the purpose by changing the strength of the applied external fields, and these results can be used to tune and control the electronic and optical properties of the Tietz-Hua potential quantum well.
