Class Information
Number: 257/14
Name: Active solid-state devices (e.g., transistors, solid-state diodes) > Thin active physical layer which is (1) an active potential well layer thin enough to establish discrete quantum energy levels or (2) an active barrier layer thin enough to permit quantum mechanical tunneling or (3) an active layer thin enough to permit carrier transmission with substantially no scattering (e.g., superlattice quantum well, or ballistic transport device) > Heterojunction > Quantum well
Description: Subject matter wherein at least two heterojunctions are formed with a thin active layer of material having a relatively large carrier affinity between two materials with smaller carrier affinities, resulting in a quantum mechanical energy well located in the thin active layer with the relatively large carrier affinity.
