  • In this contribution we are mainly interested in the effects of an externally applied electric field on the electronic states of semiconductors quantum wells and superlattices. Such structures are simply viewed as a sequence of different semiconductor layers grown sucessively along a well defined crystalline growth direction. The carriers’ motion along this growth direction (hereafter called the z direction) is then strongly modified by the presence of the various thin (≈100A) layers, whereas… CONTINUE READING
