The effect of hydrostatic pressure on subband structure and optical transitions in modulation-doped quantum well
MetadataShow full item record
Within the framework of effective-mass approximation, we have calculated theoretically the effects of hydrostatic pressure and doping concentration on subband structure and optical transitions in modulation-doped GaAs/Al(x)Ga(1-x)As quantum well for different well widths. The electronic structure of modulation-doped quantum well under the hydrostatic pressure is determined by solving the Schrodinger and Poisson equations self-consistently. The results obtained show that intersubband transitions and the subband energy levels in the modulation-doped quantum well can be significantly modified and controlled by the well width, donor concentration and hydrostatic pressure.
