Paper Abstract

We study effects of modulation doping in a type-II quantum well by performing a self-consistent band structure calculation using the 8-band k • p theory. We show that modulation doping can convert a type-II quantum well structures into type-I. The associated band bending and charge redistribution lead to strong interband transition in such type-II structures comparable to that of a type-I quantum well. The results are shown for InAs/AlSb quantum well, where TM mode optical gain can be as high as 4000cm-1. We also studied effects of doping on differential gain.
