Abstract

The problem of disorder in a quantum well (QW) system is isolated from a full treatment of QW structural disorder interplay by carefully measuring the disorder-averaged optical susceptibility of a multiple quantum well (MQW). The MQW is then used in a transfer matrix calculation for light propagation in a normal mode coupling (NMC) structure. The measured susceptibility is used to calculate the response of the microcavity structures in reflectivity. A further demonstration of the validity of the approach is presented using the extracted absorption coefficient to calculate the reflectivity linewidths for the microcavity structure.
