MQW simulates quantum mechanical behavior in atomically thin semiconductor layers, enabling engineers to accurately characterize band structure, gain and spontaneous emission in multi-quantum well structures. When designing lasers, SOAs, electro-absorption modulators or other gain-driven active photonic devices, MQW provides the deep physical insight necessary to ensure success.

Key MQW applications include:

  • Edge-emitting lasers
  • VCSELs
  • Electro-absorption modulators
  • SOAs
