Paper Abstract

We analyze the steady state and transient properties of the polarization and of the electronic population in a triple semiconductor quantum well structure with tunneling induced interference. We first derive the dark states of the system and show that this structure can lead to double dark states. Then, we show that under the dark state conditions the system can exhibit tunneling induced transparency, slow light, transient gain without inversion and coherent population trapping. The dynamics of the polarization and of the electronic population, as well as the total trapped electronic population in the system, are found to be depended on which dark state condition is satisfied.
