Abstract:

The changes in the bound-state energies and oscillator strength for intersubband transitions brought about by a thin barrier in the middle of an asymmetric quantum well height approaches the bound-state energies. It is found that the oscillator strength goes through a slight change as the barrier height approaches the ground-state energy but an abrupt change when it approaches the excited bound-state energy. A suitable explanation for this change is provided. A similar tailoring of the intersubband transitions is also achieved by placing a delta-function potential in the vicinity of the middle of the well but without any abrupt change in the oscillator strength. Keywords Quantum well Intersubband transitions Thin barrier Delta function potential Oscillator strengths theory.
