Paper Abstract

Laser diodes and amplifiers of a nevv type based on asymmetric quantum-well heterostructures having a set of active layers different in thicknesses are considered. For such modified low-dimensional systems, in contrast to conventional laser heterostructures, the gain spectrum and a series of stimulated emission frequencies are varied through a wide range by choice of the widths and component compositions of quantum wells and barrier regions. Keywords: asymmetric quantum-well heterostructures, gain spectra, spectral broadening
