The nonlinear optical properties of a Poschl-Teller Quantum well (PTQW) under electric and magnetic fields are studied. The salient feature of this potential is its flexibility. It can be made asymmetrical by a proper choice of its two parameters. Optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation susceptibilities are calculated using the density matrix formalism. We study the effects of quantum confinement, electric and magnetic fields on all of these optical coefficients.

Optical absorption of a quantum well with an adjustable asymmetry
Yildirim, H.; Tomak, Mehmet (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-04-01)
The effects of asymmetry and the electric field on the electronic subbands and the nonlinear intersubband optical absorption of GaAs quantum wells represented by a Poschl-Teller confining potential are studied. The potential itself can be made asymmetric through a correct choice of its parameter set and this adjustable asymmetry is important for optimizing the absorption. In that way optimal cases can be created. We calculate the modified wave functions and electronic subbands variationally. The linear and ...
Exciton related nonlinear optical properties of a spherical quantum dot
Aksahin, E.; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Tomak, Mehmet (2015-11-01)
The nonlinear optical properties of an exciton in a spherical quantum dot (QD) is studied analytically. The nonlinear optical coefficients are calculated within the density matrix formalism. The electronic problem is solved within the effective mass approximation. The contributions from the competing effects of the confinement, the Coulomb interaction, and the applied electric field are calculated and compared with each other. We have made no assumptions about the strength of the confinement. We concentrate...
Nonlinear optical properties of a Woods-Saxon quantum dot under an electric field
AYTEKİN, ÖZLEM; Turgut, Sadi; Unal, V. Ustoglu; Aksahin, E.; Tomak, Mehmet (Elsevier BV, 2013-12-01)
A theoretical study of the effect of the confining potential on the nonlinear optical properties of two dimensional quantum dots is performed. A three-parameter Woods-Saxon potential is used within the density matrix formalism. The control of confinement by three parameters and an applied electric field gives one quite an advantage in studying their effects on the nonlinear properties. The coefficients investigated include the optical rectification, second and third-harmonic generation and the change in the...
Nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures
Yıldırım, Hasan; Tomak, Mehmet; Department of Physics (2006)
The nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor heterostructures, such as GaAsAl/GaAs alloys, are studied with analytic and numerical methods on the basis of quantum mechanics. Particularly, second and third-order nonlinear optical properties of quantum wells described by the various types of confining potentials are considered within the density matrix formalism. We consider a Pöschl-Teller type potential which has been rarely considered in this area. It has a tunable asymmetry parameter, making it a goo...
Thermal characterisation of quantum cascade lasers with Fabry Perot modes
Gundogdu, Sinan; Pisheh, Hadi Sedaghat; Demir, Abdullah; Guenoven, Mete; AYDINLI, ATİLLA; Sirtori, Carlo (2018-04-26)
Quantum cascade lasers are coherent light sources that rely on intrersubband transition in periodic semiconductor quantum well structures. They operate at frequencies from mid-infrared to terahertz. In cases of long wavelength and typical low thermal conductivity of the active region, temperature rise in the active region during operation is a major concern. Thermal conductivity of QCL epi-layers differ significantly from the values of bulk semiconductors and measurement of the thermal conductivity of epi-l...
