Abstract-A quantum rings based on multiple quantum wells for 1.2–2.8 THz detection
Alireza Mobini, M. Solaiman,
In this paper optical properties of a new QR based on MQWs have been investigated for detection in the THz range. The QR composed of a periodic effective quantum sites that each one considered as QW in theta direction. Using Tight binding method, eigen value problem for a QR with circumstance of 100 nm number with different number of wells i.e. 2, 4, 6 and 8 are solved and the absorption spectrum have been calculated. The results show that absorption has maximum value in range of (1.2–2.88 THz) that can be used for THz detection. Finally, it is realized that by increasing the number of wells, the numbers of absorption line also increase.
