Paper Abstract

Multiple quantum well structures of several materials such as GaAs/GaAlAs and InGaAs/InP have interesting nonlinear optical properties for devices. One example is the adjustment of absorption edge as well as the refractive index by control of the well width or application of electric field. The theoretical understandings of these properties in terms of the intrinsic material constants and externally controlled parameters are to be discussed. We also review s
