The concept of doping SLs was introduced by Esaki and Tsu [1] and extensive work in this subject was initiated by Dohler [2–15] . In the compositional SL the periodic potential is due to a change in the band gap of two materials. In doping SLs, the periodicity is space-charge induced and in addition a homogeneous material is used. With the advent of modern experimental techniques of fabricating nanomaterials, it is possible to grow semiconductor superlattices (SLs) composed of alternative layers of two different degenerate layers with controlled thickness.
