Abstract

We report electroluminescence experiments on HgTe/Cd0.7Hg0.3Te quantum wells with inverted band structure in strong lateral electric fields. The electroluminescence is found to appear above a critical bias. Spectral measurements show emission peaks at energies around 6 meV and 70 meV corresponding to interband and intersubband transitions, respectively. The excitation mechanism is attributed to the Zener tunneling that is consistent with the current-voltage characteristics and the bias dependence of the emission intensity.
