The relative lineup of the band structures of the two constituents of a semiconductor superlattice can cause charge carriers to be confined. This occurs when the energy of a superlattice state is located in an allowed energy region of one of the constituents (the "well" semiconductor), but in the band gap of the other (the "barrier" semiconductor). A charge carrier will tend to be confined in the layers made from the semiconductor with the allowed region at that energy. It will have an exponentially decaying amplitude to be found in the semiconductor with a band gap at that energy.
