Paper Abstract

The interaction between two closely spaced quantum well (QW) structures has been studied by observing the change in photoluminescence (PL) energy as a function of the barrier thickness between the wells. Theoretical model and experimental results agree to within a few meV for these structures. The strongest coupling is for the narrowest wells and the thinnest barrier. Only the symmetric <----> symmetric transition between the n=1 states of the confined electron and heavy hole states was observed.
