    Abstract

    A microscopic calculation of the perpendicular current in doped multiple quantum wells is presented. Interface roughness is shown to affect the resonant transitions as well as to cause a nonresonant background current. The theoretical characteristics exhibit several branches due to the formation of electric field domains in quantitative agreement with experimental data. (C) 1998 Academic Press Limited.
