Abstract:

In this study, we have investigated the effects of the well parameters (Lw well width, Lb barrier width),

applied the external electric and magnetic field strengths and direction of the magnetic field (tilt angle)

on the electronic and optical properties of the GaAs/GaAlAs multiple quantum wells are investigated.

The energy levels and wave functions of the system are calculated by using the transfer matrix method

within the effective mass approximation and the compact density-matrix approach is used for the

optical transitions (linear, nonlinear and total absorption coefficients) between two low-lying

electronic energy levels. Our results show that the electronic and optical properties of the system are

sensitive to the applied external field strengths and the magnetic field direction. Therefore, we can

conclude that the effects of the applied external fields and the tilt angle ( magnetic field direction) can

be used to adjust and control the optical properties of the system to our purpose.
