Enhancement of photon intensity in forced coupled quantum wells inside a semiconductor microcavity
MetadataShow full item record
We study numerically the photon emission from a semiconductor microcavity containing N 2 quantum wells under the influence of a periodic external forcing. The emission is determined by the interplay between external forcing and internal interaction between the wells. While the external forcing synchronizes the periodic motion, the internal interaction destroys it. The nonlinear term of the Hamiltonian supports the synchronization. The numerical results show a jump of the photon intensity to very large values at a certain critical value of the external forcing when the number of quantum wells is not too large. We discuss the dynamics of the system across this transition.
