Electronic States in Cd1−xZnxTe/CdTe Strained Layer Coupled Double Quantum Wells and their Photoluminescence

  • Tiesheng Li (a1) and H. J. Lozykowski (a1)


Experimental and theoretical investigations of electronic states in a strained-layer CdTe/CdZnTe coupled double quantum well structure are presented. The optical properties of this lattice mismatched heterostructure were characterized by photoluminescence (PL), PL excitation and polarization spectroscopies. The influence of electrical field on exciton states in the strained layer CdTe/CdZnTe coupled double quantum well structure is experimentally studied. The confined electronic states were calculated in the framework of the envelope function approach, taking into account the strain effect induced by the lattice-mismatch. Experimental results are compared with the calculated transition energies.
