Paper Abstract

Modulation spectroscopy utilizes a general principle of experimental physics, in which a periodically applied perturbation either to the probe or the sample leads to derivative-like features in the optical response of the sample. We review the application of the modulation techniques of electroreflectance, photoreflectance and piezomodulation to microstructure such as quantum wells, superlattices and modulation doped heterojunctions. It is shown that modulation spectroscopy is a powerful set of optical tools for the characterization of microstructures.
