Article title

Long wavelength enhanced Kerr nonlinearity via Fano-type interference in semiconductor quantum


Title variants

Languages of publication



The linear and nonlinear behaviors of susceptibility via tunable
Fano-type interference, based on intersubband transitions
in asymmetric double quantum wells (QWs) driven coherently
by a probe laser field, are analyzed. It is shown that
Kerr nonlinearity can be controlled competently by tuning the
energy splitting of the two excited states (the coupling strength
of the tunneling), i.e. Fano-type interference. This outcome
may be used for optimizing and controlling long wavelength
optical switching processes in QW solid-state systems, which
is much more useful than that currently used in atomic systems
because of its flexible design and the controllable interference
