Morkoc, (Springer-Verlag, 1987) 143-146.

We present the first observation of absorption quenching in a semiconductor quantum well by electrical control of the carrier density. We have observed this novel effect at room temperature in a single modulation-doped InGaAs quantum well which was used as the conducting channel of a field effect transistor. The effect is extremely large and we have used it for direct optical determination of the state of the modulation doped field effect transistor (MODFET)
