Abstract

The intrinsic bistable terahertz response of intersubband plasmons in wide n-type δ-doped quantum wells is predicted to be enhanced by a resonant Fabry–Perot cavity. With a simple low-Q resonator, the threshold for bistability is decreased by a factor of 2–3 compared with that for bare multiple quantum wells.
