Paper Abstract

Studies are reported of an MBE-grown, two-quantum-well structure which uses photon-assisted resonant tunneling between the two quasi-confined well states to provide a detection current. Bias applied across the device allows for tuning of the wavelength of the detected light by changing the difference in energy of the two states. Various charactrization measurements of this structure will be described, and their ramifications will be discussed.
