Above GaSb barrier in type II quantum well structures for mid-infrared emission detected by Fourier-transformed modulated reflectivity

Modulation spectroscopy in its Fourier-transformed mode has been employed to investigate the optical properties of broken gap ‘W’-shaped GaSb/AlSb/InAs/InGaSb/InAs/AlSb/GaSb quantum well structures designed to emit in the mid infrared range of 3–4 μm for applications in laser-based gas sensing. Besides the optical transitions originating from the confined states in the type II quantum wells, a number of spectral features at the energy above the GaSb band gap have been detected. They have been analyzed in a function of InAs and GaSb layer widths and ultimately connected with resonant states in the range of AlSb tunneling barriers.
