Abstract
Conduction band intersubband absorption and second harmonic generation (SHG) are demonstrated in doubly resonant asymmetric step high indium content quantum wells (QW) grown on a GaAs substrate. Intersubband absorption peaks at 5.51 micrometers and 3.05 micrometers corresponding to the 1 to 2 and 1 to 3 transitions are measured. The susceptibility of SHG from the QW, (Chi) QW(2), is measured using a free electron laser by interference between the SHG fields generated from the QW and the GaAs substrate. A large asymmetry in the SHG power with rotation angle of the sample arising from (Chi) QW(2) is observed. The magnitude and phase of (Chi) QW(2) is measured in the 4.6 - 6.3 micrometers pump wavelength range. (Chi) QW(2) is of maximum amplitude at 6.0 micrometers with a value of 145 +/- 20 nm/V. A change in the sign of the phase of (Chi) QW(2) within the SHG resonance is demonstrated for the first time. Agreement of both the linear and nonlinear properties to a simple model assuming Lorentzian linewidths is discussed. SHG of 2.0 micrometers light is also demonstrated in coupled In0.60Ga0.40As/AlAs quantum wells.
