More About the Quantum Well Laser

We continue the discussion of subbands with a description of wave functions and energy bands of electrons in a quantum well. We also show how light holes modify the gain profile. Furthermore, we discuss the influence of inhomogeneous broadening on the properties of a quantum well laser.
