Abstract

We propose a modulation scheme of optical absorption in a coupled asymmetric quantum well (QW) structure via electrically controllable quantum interference. It is based on the parallel-perpendicular energy coupling effect. We show that by applying an external electric Held in the parallel direction (to the QW layers), we can obtain a maximum (peak-type) absorption at a specific wavelength where absorption cancellation would occur due to electrically induced transparency without such an external Held .
