A study of charge oscillations due to electron- and hole-coherent, and mixing tunnelling in coupled quantum well structures is given. The time-dependent picture of coherent tunnelling of an electron and hole wave packet is obtained by the application of the time-development operator of the time-dependent Schrödinger equation, and the time-dependent Schrödinger equation with the Luttinger Hamiltonian. Detailed physical mechanisms involving resonant coherent tunnelling on electrons, valence-band mixing effects on heavy- and light-hole tunnelling, spatial and mixing multiple tunnelling effects, in coupled quantum wells are described.
