Paper Abstract

A self-consistent rate equation analysis of the direct current modulation response is performed through a calculation of the relevant carrier and tunneling lifetimes for a prototype triple quantum well structure suitable for incorporation in intersubband lasers. Opportunities for accessing predicted THz modulation response capabilities in such devices are examined. The intersubband optical gain spectra of these devices are investigated.
