a b s t r a c t In this work, the linear and nonlinear phonon-assisted cyclotron resonance (PACR) in a parabolic quantum well (PQW) under the applied electric field have been theoretically studied. General analytical expressions for the absorption power are obtained by using the perturbation approach. The effect of the electric field on PACR conditions is also indicated. We investigated numerically the dependence of PACR absorption spectrum as well as PACR-linewidth on the temperature, on the external electric and magnetic fields, and on confinement frequency. The results show that the PACR absorption spectrum is affected by the Landau levels, the electric subband levels and the electric field. Furthermore, external electric field results in increasing the possibility of the electron– phonon scattering, and plays an important role in the blue shift of PACR absorption spectrum.

and nonlinear optical absorption coefficients have been theoretically investigated in a large number of papers, such as: GaAs-Ga1x Alx As asymmetric double quantum wells [1,2], in V-shaped quantum well [3], in double semi-parabolic quantum wells [4,5], in a disk-shaped quantum dot with parabolic potential plus an inverse squared potential [6], in Ga1x Inx Ny As1y =GaAs double quantum wells [7], in a two-dimensional quantum dot [8], in a parabolically confinement wire in the presence of Rashba spin orbit interaction [9], in double semi-graded quantum wells [10], and in modulation-doped quantum wells [11]. The linear and nonlinear optical properties in a spherical nanolayer quantum system subjected to a uniform applied electric field directed with respect to the z-axis have been theoretically investigated within the compact-density matrix formalism and the iterative method by Chen and Xie [12]. In addition, Wu et al. theoretically investigated the polaron effects on the linear and the nonlinear optical absorption coefficients and refractive index changes in cylindrical quantum dots [13]. The linear and nonlinear absorption coefficients as well as the refractive index changes have been studied in a disc shaped quantum dot [14], in asymmetrical Gaussian potential quantum wells [15], and in a parabolic quantum well [16] under the applied electric field. It is well known that the phonon-assisted cyclotron resonance (PACR) is an effect indicating electron transitions between Landau levels due to the absorption of photons accompanied with the absorption or emission of phonons. Since the early theoretically predictions [17] and experimental observations [18], the cyclotron resonance (CR) and PACR have been studied both theoretically and experimentally in bulk semiconductors [19–22], in quantum wells [23–29], and in quantum wires [30–32]. In most of these studies, CR and PACR have been examined in the process of mono-photon absorptions (linear phenomenon). However, the study of PACR via the multi-photon absorption process (nonlinear phenomenon) in PQW, especially under the applied electric field, is still open for further investigation. Unlike the previous studies [29,32], the present work investigates the affects of the magnetic field, the temperature and the confinement frequency on the linear and nonlinear PACR absorption spectrum as well as PACR-linewidth in PQW under the applied electric field when electrons interact with LO-phonon. We also studied the effect of electric field on the PACR condition and on the shift of PACR absorption spectrum peaks as well. The paper is organized as follows: in Section 2, the theoretical framework used in calculations and the analytical results are presented, followed by numerical results and discussions of the results in Section 3. Finally, a brief conclusion is given in Section 4.

2. Model and theory We consider the transport of an electron gas in a quantum well structure, in which a one-dimensional electron gas is confined in a heterostructure by a potential UðzÞ along the z-direction, and electron motions are free in ðxyÞ plane. When a static magnetic field B is applied in the z-direction and a static electric field Ex is applied in the x-direction, in the Landau gauge for the vector potential A ¼ Bxey , the one-electron Hamiltonian, states and eigenvalues read [33,34]

The present result yields a more specific and significant interpretation of the electronic processes for emission and absorption of phonons and photons. The delta functions in Eq. (12) present the energy conservation law. This implies that when the electron undergoes a collision by absorbing energy from the electromagnetic field, its energy can only change by an amount equal to the energy of a phonon involved in the transitions. As a result, the PACR is affected by the Landau levels, the electric subband levels and electric field. The energy-conservation delta functions in Eq. (12) show resonant behavior at the PARC condition for PQW from the selection rule of transition condition as follows

‘hX ¼ phxc þ Dnn0  eEx Dx  hx0 :

ð15Þ

In the absence of electric field ðEx ¼ 0Þ and without transition between the levels en ; ðDnn0 ¼ 0Þ, this condition is reduced to ‘ hX ¼ p hxc   hx0 . This is the pure PACR condition, which only takes place by the magnetic field [29,32]. Furthermore, we see that the transition condition in Eq. (15) also shows the other resonant behaviors, such as: the optically detected electrophonon resonance (ODEPR) [40,41], due to the electric subband in the z-direction at the conditions  hX ¼ Dnn0   hx0 ð‘ ¼ 1; p ¼ 0Þ, and also the optically detected magnetophonon resonance (ODMPR) [35], at the condition p hxc ¼  hx0 þ Dnn0   hX. 3. Results and discussion We have theoretically investigated the linear and nonlinear PACR in PQW under an applied magnetic field. In this study, for numerical calculations, we have taken e ¼ 12:5; v1 ¼ 10:9; v0 ¼ 13:1; m ¼ 0:067me ; me being the mass of free electron,  hx0 ¼ 36:25 meV, ne ¼ 1023 m3 , and F 0 ¼ 4:5  105 V=m [40,42]. In Fig. 1, the absorption power is plotted versus the photon energy at B ¼ 25 T, corresponding to the cyclotron energy  hxc ¼ 43:47 meV. The main peak occurs at  hX ¼ 43:47 meV describing the cyclotron resonance. The anothers peaks are due to PACR, which represents resonance transfer of electrons between Landau levels and electric subbands with absorption of photons accompanied by the absorption/emission of phonons. For a magnetic field of B ¼ 25 T, the transitions correspond to type 1 in Ref. [28], as the cyclotron energy is larger than that of the LO-phonon. By using the computational method, we easily determine that the peaks at  hX ¼ 90:70 meV, 143.17 meV and 186.64 meV satisfy the condition  xþ hX ¼ p hxc þ Dnn0 þ eEx D hx0 , with p = 1, 2 and 3, respectively. These three peaks correspond to the one-photon process (linear phenomenon). Moreover, the intensities of the peaks at p ¼ 2 and 3 are about 19% and 6%, respectively, of that at p ¼ 1. In the case of two-photon absorption process (nonlinear phenomenon), the condition for resonance

However, the two peaks transitions can be written as 2 xþh hX ¼ p hxc þ Dnn0 þ eEx D corresponding to p ¼ 1 and p ¼ 3 are not obviously visible due to the overlap of peak positions. In detail, p ¼ 1 peak is coincided with the main peak and its intensity is quite smaller than that of the main one; while p ¼ 3 peak is nearly coincided with another one whose position is at 99.70 meV, as described above. The peak at  hX ¼ 71:58 meV is caused by nonlinear phenomenon with p ¼ 2, which represents resonance transfer of electrons between Landau levels and electric subbands with absorption of two-photons accompanied by the emission of an LO-phonon. Two peaks at  hX ¼ 8:13 meV and 16.25 meV satisfy the condition ‘ x hX ¼ p hxc þ Dnn0  eEx D hx0 with ‘ ¼ 2 (nonlinear-) and 1 (linear- phenomenon), respectively. These two peaks describe the absorption phonon process. Fig. 2 shows the dependence of PACR absorption spectrum on the confinement frequency. From the figure, it can be seen that the PACR absorption spectrum is related to the confinement frequency. When the confinement frequency rises, the PACR absorption spectrum has been reduced in magnitude and also shifted towards higher energies (blue shift). The blue shift is caused by the larger subband separation energy, Dnn0 , for a higher confinement frequency. The additional peaks in the curves for

xz =x0 ¼ 0:6 (dashed) and 0.8 (dotted) are separated from the main peak when confinement frequency increases. To show clearly the electric field effect on the linear and nonlinear PACR in PQW, in Fig. 3 we plot the variation of the absorption power as a function of the photon energy for different values of the electric field. From the figure, when the electric field is increased, the PACR absorption spectrum of emission phonon process shows blue shift, whereas this spectrum of absorption phonon process shows the red one. The reason for this resonance shift is the increase in the potential energy, eEx D x, for a stronger electric field. Fig. 4 shows the dependence of PACR absorption spectrum on the temperature. As in our previous studies [29,32], in PQW the PACR peaks are located at the same position but the peak values of absorption power increase with the temperature. This can be explained from the increase in the possibility of the electron–phonon scattering in higher temperature. Moreover, with the increase in the temperature, the peaks become less sharp. At the higher temperature, the linewidth of PACR peaks are more larger (see Fig. 8), making the peaks indistinct.

Fig. 5 shows the dependence of PACR absorption spectrum on the magnetic field. As seen in Fig. 5, we notice a blue shift when the magnetic field increases. These results are in agreement with the results obtained for previous studies [29,32]. As the magnetic field increases, the Landau level separation increases, leading to the increase of the value of absorbed photon energy. The additional peaks in the curves for B ¼ 27 T (dashed) and 29 T (dotted) are separated from the main peak when magnetic field increases. For the PACR-linewidth, using profile method [43] we obtain the confinement frequency dependence of the PACR-linewidth, as shown in Fig. 6. The figure shows the dependence of PACR-linewidth on the confinement frequency. From the figure, we can see that the PACR-linewidth increases with the confinement frequency for both linear- and nonlinear absorption process. These features can be understood easily as follows: when the confinement frequency increases, the confinement strength, az , becomes smaller, so the possibility of electron–phonon scattering increases, and thus so does the linewidth. Furthermore, the PACR-linewidth in the linear phenomenon varies faster and has a larger value than it does in comparison to the nonlinear process. The linewidth in the nonlinear process is from 54% at xz =x0 ¼ 0:2 down to 33% at xz =x0 ¼ 1:6 of that in the linear absorption process. So, the

nonlinear absorption process cannot be neglected in studying PACR-linewidth in PQW under the applied electric field. Fig. 7 shows the dependence of PACR-linewidth on the electric field. From the figure, we can see that the PACR-linewidth increases with increasing electric field for both linear- and nonlinear absorption process. This means that electric field gives rise to the possibility of the electron–phonon scattering. Fig. 8 shows the temperature dependence of the PACR-linewidth. From the figure, we can see that the PACR-linewidth varies with the square root of temperature. This result is in good agreement with the result of the paper by Chaubey and Van Vliet [24]. Physically, this is reasonable because the possibility of electron–phonon scattering increases as the temperature rises. From Fig. 9 we can see that the PACR-linewidth increases with the magnetic field B. This result is in good agreement with the results of previous papers [21,22,24,29,30,32]. This can be explained that as B increases, the cyclotron radius ac reduces, the confinement of electron increases, the probability of electron–phonon scattering increases, so does the linewidth. Beside, we can see from the figure that PACR-linewidth varies with the square root of magnetic field, agreeing with previous results [24,29,32]. In addition, the value of linewidth in the nonlinear absorption process is about 45% of that

in the linear absorption process. So, the nonlinear absorption process is strong enough to be detected, and cannot be neglected in studying the PACR-linewidth in PQW under the applied electric field. 4. Conclusion In the present work, we have theoretically studied the linear and nonlinear PACR in PQW under applied electric field when electrons interact with the LO-phonon. The absorption spectrum satisfies the condition ‘ x hX ¼ p hxc þ Dnn0  eEx D hx0 , (‘ ¼ 1; 2; p ¼ 1; 2; 3), and can include the other resonant behaviors such as ODEPR or ODMPR. The results show that the PACR behavior is affected by the magnetic field, the electric field, the temperature and confinement frequency. The electric field plays an important role leading to a blue shift of the PACR absorption spectrum, and it also gives rise to the possibility of the electron–phonon scattering. Using the profile method, we obtained the PACR-linewidth as profile of the curves. The values of the PACR-linewidth are found to increase with the increasing electric and magnetic fields, temperature and confinement frequency. These results are in agreement with the results obtained by previous studies. Although being smaller than the linear absorption process, the nonlinear process is strong enough to be detected in PACR, and cannot be neglected in studying the PACR-linewidth in PQW under applied electric field.
