Paper Abstract

We present a calculation which shows that the optical crossection of the quantum well intersubband transition may be enhanced by a factor of fifty. This allows us to speculate on a design for a fast electro-optic modulator with high efficiency, for say carbon dioxide lasers. The enhancement ought also to have relevance for detectors but we do not consider the transport aspects of that problem.
