Paper Abstract

We report the first observation of the carriers confinement and recombination in the adjusted quantum wells at the type II interface in GaInSbAs/GaSb heterostructures grown by liquid phase epitaxy. Type II heterostructures in which both the conduction and the valence band edges of one semiconductor are shifted upward relative to those of the other one can exhibit adjacent dual quantum wells for electrons and holes on the two sides of the interface. Tunneling-assisted radiative recombination between the wells offers an efficient, bias-tunable, source of radiation at below-gap energies.
