A6sPact-Measurements and calculations on the differential gain, the differential refractive index, and the linewidth enhancement factor have been performed for unstrained quantum-well (QW) material. The differential refractive index is considerably lower for the transverse magnetic (TM) polarization than for the transverse electric ("E) polarization, which is ascribed to absence of the plasma effect for the TM polarization. Tbis has implications for the linewidth enhancement factor and thus linewidth and chir…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
