J. S. Weiner, D. S. Chemla, D. A. B. Miller, H. A. Haus, A. C. Gossard, W. Wiegmann, and C. A. Burrus, "Highly Anisotropic Optical Properties of Single Quantum Well Waveguides," Appl. Phys. Lett. 47, 664-667 (1985).

The first measurements of the linear and nonlinear anisotropic absorptions of light propagating along the plane of a single quantum well are reported and discussed in terms of the structure of the valence band in ultrathin semiconductor layers. Nonlinear optical effects are compared to those of multiple layer structures and to recent theory
