Abstract

Abstract: The applicability of the resonant tunneling phenomenon for efficient extraction of photogenerated carriers from quantum wells in the electric field of the p–i–n junction is studied. It was found and shown that the efficient functioning of the considered mechanism of photocarrier extraction from quantum wells requires not only a resonant tunnel channel only for electrons; an identical tunnel channel for holes should be implemented. Quantum-well structures implementing the resonant-tunneling mechanism of photoelectron and photohole extraction are developed and proposed.
