Paper Abstract

In this work we show the potential of the ZnO/ZnMgO material system for intersubband (ISB)-based devices. This family of alloys presents a unique set of properties that makes it highly attractive for THz emission as well as strong coupling regimes: it has a very large longitudinal optical phonon energy of 72 meV, it can be doped up to ~1021 cm-3, it is very ionic with a large difference between the static and high frequency dielectric constants, and it can be grown homoepitaxially on native substrates with low defect densities. The films analyzed here are grown by molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) on a non-polar orientation, the m-plane, with varying QW thicknesses and 30% Mg concentrations in the barrier, and are examined with polarization-dependent IR absorption spectroscopy. The QW band structure and the intersubband transitions energies are modeled considering many body effects, which are key to predict correctly the measured values.
