Written by international experts, Physics and Applications of Semiconductor Quantum Structures covers the most important recent advances in the field. Beginning with a review of the evolution of semiconductor superlattices and quantum nanostructures, the book explores fabrication and characterization techniques, transport, optical, and spin-dependent properties, and concludes with a section devoted to new device applications. The book allows those who already have some familiarity with semiconductor devices to expand their knowledge into new developing topics involving semiconductor quantum structures.In fact, sub-Poissonian photon-state has been successfully generated using semiconductor laser diodes [1, 2] or light-emitting diodes (LEDs) ... In the interpretation of obtained squeezing characteristics, the significance of backward -pump process will be emphasized. ... of output photon fluxes below the SQL level from the single LED surprisingly without recourse to high-impedance circuit at room temperature. ... Figure 20.1 shows the energy-band diagram of a hetero p-n junction LED.
