1. An optical semiconductor device with a multiple quantum well structure, comprising:

  • at least one combination of alternating well layers and barrier layers, both comprising various semiconductor layers, said well layers comprising a first composition based on a nitride semiconductor material with a first electron energy, said barrier layers comprising a second composition of a nitride semiconductor material with electron energy which is higher in comparison with the first electron energy, and a radiation-active quantum well layer for which the well layers and barrier layers form a superlattice, the well layers of the first composition are essentially non-radiating well layers below the radiation-active quantum well layer.
