Paper Abstract

We have studied the electroreflectance and photoreflectance spectra from a pseudomorphic Ga0.78Al0.22As/In0.21Ga0.79As/GaAs modulation-doped quantum well (MDQW) structure in the temperature range 79 K < T < 304 K. The features from the InGaAs MDQW can be accounted for on the basis of a two-dimensional density of states and a Fermi level filling factor. A detailed lineshape fit makes it possible to evaluate the Fermi energy, and hence the two-dimensional electron gas concentration (Ns), as well as other important parameters of the structure. Our value for Ns is in good agreement with a Hall measurement. The effect of photo-injected carriers on Ns also was studied.
