A 10-band k.p formula including electric field effect is introduced to calculate the band structures and optical gain of multilayer dilute nitride semiconductors. The band structure and optical gain of 70 Å In0.37Ga0.63As0.975N0.025 compressive strain quantum well with tensile strained 200 Å GaAs0.997N0.003 barrier with emission wavelength at 1.3 um are investigated. Under an electric field of 100 keV/cm, the fundamental interband transition Stark shift is calculated, the red shift is about 140.5 meV. The peak gain is greatly decreased from 4396 cm-1 to 865 cm-1 for carrier concentration of 8×1018 cm-3. If considering dielectric effect, the effective electric field is 7.22 keV/cm, the Stark shift is greatly depressed to 1.6 meV and peak gain is slightly decreased to 4226 cm-1.
