Functional Imaging Using InGaAs/GaAs Photorefractive Multiple Quantum Wells
Metadata[+] Show full item record
We propose the use of an InGaAs/GaAs photorefractive quantum well (PRQW) as an adaptive beam combiner for holographic optical coherence imaging applications. Holograms have been observed by using a diode laser and an interferometer. A weaker quantum confined exciton leads to the saturation of electroabsorption and hence diffraction, under a high external electric field, in the InGaAs PRQW. A careful choice of external electric field modulation seems to reduce this effect. We examine several characteristics that govern the use of an InGaAs PRQW in a functional imaging system.
