Resonant enhancement of tunneling rates of electrons in p-i-n quantum well structures is observed with the technique of picosecond pump-and-probe electroabsorption. Results compare well with recently published time-resolved photoluminescence data. When measuring resonance fields with photocurrent spectroscopy, we find that there is a small, but measurable shift between the "resonance" resonating electron states (n=1 and n=2). We explain these results in terms of electron-hole Coulomb interaction, which must be taken into account in any optical measurement.
