This study is devoted to the development of resonant-tunneling structures of quantum wells implementing resonant matching of lower subbands of size quantization in an electric field of the p-i-n junction of photovoltaic elements. The method for controlling the lower subband position in quantum wells by introducing a series of the tunnel-transparent barriers into a quantum well is proposed. The possibility of varying the level position in deep quantum wells in a wide range up to the continuous spectrum is demonstrated on a grown model structure; in this case, agreement between calculated and experimental subband positions is achieved.
