Abstract:

Among the effects studied are interface island formation, photoluminescence saturation due to traps, localization and delocalization and associated with it superluminescence, cascading of nonlinear effects in vertical structures, optical rectification, and coherent current control. We propose to continue our research in the following directions fabrication and testing of all-optical frequency shifters and other cascading devices for optical communications, further development of intersubband lasers, theoretical study of a fundamentally new type of low threshold image lasers, investigation of all-semiconductor magnetic materials, and new types of electronic sensors.
