Paper Abstract

In this paper valence band designs that allow simple normal incidence in the TE mode as in a convention solar cell are studied and shown to be more efficient than conduction band-based TM structures in a range of the far infrared. The relevance of many-body corrections is further investigated numerically for III-V quantum well structures.
