Polarization response of quantum-confined structures using edge-photovoltage spectroscopy

Mexis, Meletios, Blood, Peter and Smowton, Peter Michael ORCID: 2007. Polarization response of quantum-confined structures using edge-photovoltage spectroscopy. Semiconductor Science and Technology 22 (12) , pp. 1298-1301. 10.1088/0268-1242/22/12/010

We propose a method to obtain the ratio of the fundamental TE/TM optical response of a quantum-confined system from the measurement of the polarization dependence of the edge photovoltage spectrum by correcting for polarization-dependent features of the experimental system. When applied to compressive- and tensile-strained InGaP quantum well structures, the results are in excellent agreement with known ratios of the band-edge matrix elements. The method will be of a particular value in the study of quantum dot systems.
