The Stark shift of the ground interband transitions has been studied by means of room temperature photoluminescence in asymmetric step InGaAs/GaAs quantum wells with different step widths. The shift magnitude is found to increase with increasing step width. It is shown that by a proper design of the well profile the Stark shift in the asymmetric step quantum well may be increased nearly twice as compared to the rectangular well of the same width.
