D. A. B. Miller, "Electric Field Dependence of Optical Absorption in Quantum Well Structures: Physics and Applications," Proc. SPIE 792, "Quantum Well and Superlattice Physics," 176-177, (1987).

Electroabsorption near the optical absorption edge of quantum well materials is interesting both for physics and applications. The author briefly summarizes the physical mechanisms involved (e.g. the quantum-confined Stark effect) and the applications to optical modulators and switching devices
