Abstract: This thesis presents theoretical studies of electronic band structures and optical properties for compressively strained InGaAsN/GaAs quantum well (QW). We have used a realistic 10-band k.p model for the detailed calculation of band structures and have even studied the QW structure with tensile GaAs/GaAsP/GaAs compounded barrier. Strained conduction band offset ratio (Qc) of InGaAsN/GaAs was proposed. Together with band gap energy (EG) and electron effective mass (m*) based on band-anticrossing (BAC) model, we are able to predict quantum well transition energies that is reasonably close to the reported experimental values. Model-dependent prediction of transition energy (Eeh) and energy separation of conduction subbands were also conducted using additional 8-band and 6-band k.p models, which neglect nitrogen related energy level (EN) and conduction-valence band interaction, respectively.
