Paper Abstract

Recent applications of semiconductor quantum wells to engineered nonlinear optical devices are reviewed. Two specific applications which have recently been demonstrated successfully experimentally are highlighted: patterned quasi-phase-matching gratings for 3-wave mixing in second- order nonlinear devices; quantum-well saturable absorbers and pulse shapers for ultrashort-pulse modelocking of several laser types, including solid-state and semiconductor lasers.
