Abstract : One of most attractive discoveries in cavity-quantum-electrodynamics in a past decade is that spontaneous emission of an atom can be controlled by squeezing zero-point fluctuations of the photon fields surrounding the atom in both spatial and frequency domains. Considering quantum optoelectronic device-applications, in addition to control of photon system, it is of great important to control electron system as well in order to alter spontaneous emissions. This can be easily realized, by up-date technologies, in semiconductor systems by use of distributed Bragg reflectors (DBRs) and the quantum confined Stark effect (QCSE) for control of photon and electron systems, respectively. The main purpose of this paper is to review our experimental results on physical phenomena originating from control of quantum electron- and photon-systems, and its possible device applications.
