When this publisher offered me the opportunity to \\Tite a book, some six years ago, I did not hesitate to say yes. I had just spent the last four years of graduate school struggling to understand the physics of strained quantum well lasers, and it seemed to me the whole experience was much more difficult that it should have been. This book provides the information necessary for the reader to achieve a thorough understanding of all aspects of QW lasers - from the basic mechanism of optical gain, through the current technolgoical state of the art, to the future technologies of quantum wires and quantum dots. In view of the growing importance of QW lasers, this book should be read by all those with an active interest in 4/5(1). Abstract.

Abstract. In this chapter, we combine our previous results to describe the gain and emission processes in strained quantum well lasers. We begin in Section by summarizing the thermodynamic properties of quantum well conduction and valence subbands under high-level injection.

The theory as well as the practical aspects of the devices are discussed at length. The aim of the book is to provide a comprehensive treatment of the physics underlying the various devices. A reader after going through the book should find himself equipped to deal with all kinds of quantum well devices. High-power single-mode (SM) and multi-mode (MM) InGaAs-AlGaAs strained quantum well (QW) lasers with emission wavelengths of − nm are extensively used in various fiber lasers and. Optical Physics of Quantum Wells David A. B. Miller Rm. 4B, AT&T Bell Laboratories Holmdel, NJ USA 1 Introduction Quantum wells are thin layered semiconductor structures in which we can observe and control. Toshiaki Suhara, Masahiro Uemukai, in Handai Nanophotonics, 1 INTRODUCTION. Quantum-well (QW) structures of III-V semiconductors with nanometer layer thickness offer a number of advantages as an active structure for semiconductor lasers [1].Use of strained QWs enables enhancement of the performances and expansion of functions.
