Abstract

Interwell carrier transport in a semiconductor optical amplifier having a structure of alternating tensile and compressively strained quantum wells was studied by four-wave mixing at detuning frequencies up to 1 THz. A calculation of transbarrier transport efficiency is also presented to qualitatively explain the measured signal spectra.
