In this case, hybrid magnetoelectric states form in the quantum well and give rise to clear resonances in the tunnel current6"10. The basic properties of these magneto-electric resonances can be understood qualitatively by means of a semi-classical model. 4). F i g . 2 Conduction band profile (electron potential energy) across a double barrier resonant tunnelling structure The leftrhand contact acts as the electron emitter. When there is an undoped interface between the heavily doped contact and the barriers, an electron accumulation layer (shaded) is formed adjacent to the emitter barrier.

63 who used a single sharply defined doping layer, or d doped layer, placed near the heterointerface on the low gap side. This was referred to as 'quantum interfaceinduced', or QUID. The conduction band profile for such doping of an AlGaAs/GaAs junction is illustrated in Fig. 13. Because of the asymmetry of the potential at the interface the electron charge densities in the individual subbands in the quantum well are displaced from the centroid of the ionised donor sheet. As a result of this dipole layer the barrier height for perpendicular transport is much reduced relative to that in the undoped case.
