Abstract:

The objective of this experimental program is to define the regimes in which scattering and carrier collection dominate the performance of quantum well and superlattice devices. The program consists of five thrusts 1 materials growth 2 carrier collection experiments 3 utilization of ultra- thin monolayer thick quantum wells 4 the understanding, control and utilization of dissipative mechanisms for new device concepts, and 5 the demonstration of devices. The results obtained are applicable to monolithic photonic devices and high speed optical interconnect technology. A new device called a Bias Induced Color-Tuned Emitter BICE based on the selective collection of carriers in a quantum well was demonstrated for the first time. Electronic devices, Optoelectronic devices, Semiconductor lasers, Quantum wells, Optical interconnects.
