Terahertz and near-infrared photoluminescence under conditions of interband stimulated emission are studied in n-GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well laser structure. The observed terahertz emission is related to the optical transitions of nonequilibrium electrons from the first electron subband and excited donor states to donor ground states in quantum wells. The opportunity to increase the intensity of impurity-assisted terahertz emission due to interband stimulated emission with the participation of impurity centres is demonstrated.
