The structure of a multiquantum barrier (MQB) is discussed, and possible choices of well and barrier thickness and pair number for a visible AlGaInP laser in the 630 nm wavelength range are examined. Is it confirmed that an effective potential barrier can be two times as high as a classical potential barrier. The potential barrier height under biased conditions is shown to be larger than 50 meV, considering the variation of Fermi level changes in the MQB region. This may contribute to higher temperature CW operation when introduced into visible AlGaInP lasers. By photoluminescence (PL) measurement, the effect of electron-wave confinement of a GaAs/AlGaAs MQB is experimentally verified. A weak saturation in PL excitation power dependence and less sensitive temperature dependence were observed. These effects could be due to the increase in potential barrier height, and show a superior carrier confinement of MQB
