Paper Abstract

We investigate the subband dispersions in the InAs/GaSb quantum wells using Burt's envelope function theory and the scattering matrix method. The potential and carrier distributions as well as the level positions are derived by means of self-consistently solving the Schroedinger and the Poisson equations. The semimetal-semiconductor phase transitions have been obtained with the GaSb layer thickness decreasing and with increase of the bias voltage applied across the structure.
