Abstract
A microscopic theory that describes injection currents in GaAs quantum wells is presented. 14 × 14 band k.p theory is used to compute the band structure including anisotropy and spin-orbit interaction. Transient injection currents are obtained via numerical solutions of the semiconductor Bloch equations. Depending on the growth direction of the considered quantum well system and the propagation and polarization directions of the incident light beam, it is possible to generate charge and/or spin photocurrents on ultrashort time scales. The dependence of the photocurrents on the excitation conditions is computed and discussed.
