Abstract:

Preparation of high quality GaAsGaA1As Multiple quantum wells MQW grown by Metalorganic Chemical Vapor Deposition on GaAs substrates and measurement of nonlinear saturation has been completed in this 18 month contract. The results show materials which rivals the highest quality MQWs grown by any technique. Preparation of GaAsGaA1As MQWs on GaP substrates and measurement of nonlinear saturation has been completed. It was shown that this material has high cw saturation intensity and, if used in a nonlinear Fabry-Perot, would be useful only in pulsed experiments. The material looks ideal for hybrid devices.
