Class Information
Number: 257/15
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 > Superlattice
Description: Subject matter wherein a large number of quantum wells are present, the quantum wells being sufficiently close to each other that carrier quantum wave functions are spread out over plural quantum wells and the intervening barriers formed by the boundaries between adjacent layers having different carrier affinities.
