In this present study, we have investigated theoretically the effect of structure parameters (eta and kappa) and high-frequency intense laser field (ILF) on the linear and nonlinear optical properties of a GaAs quantum well (QW) with new type of hyperbolic confinement potential. Within the framework of the effective-mass and parabolic band approximations, we have computed the confined subband energy levels and their corresponding densities of probability by using the diagonalization method. Besides, we evaluated the total optical absorption coefficients (TOACs) and total refractive index changes (TRICs). The obtained numerical findings show that an increase of the eta (kappa) structure parameter causes an increase (decrease) in amplitude in TOACs and a blue (red) shift of the resonance energy spectrum. In addition, with the increase of the ILF, the resonance energy spectrum shifts to blue, while the amplitude of TOACs (TRICs) increased (decreased). We think that the obtained these results can be useful in the design of new device's generation employed in optoelectronic domain.
