Paper Abstract

This paper explores our immediate efforts to exploit basic quantum-well physics and optics in an effort to improve the performance of electroabsorption modulators and Self Electro-optic Effect Devices (SEEDs) for applications in optical processing systems. SEEDs with thick-, thin-, and extremely-shallow-barrier multiple quantum wells are comprehensively and systematically studied and compared experimentally, and improvements noted. Room- temperature resonant tunneling in thin-barrier multiple-quantum-well structures and its effects on device performance will be reported. Enhancements and uniformity considerations using practical Fabry-Perot effects will also be discussed.
