Polarization sensitivity of quantum-well structures with delta-strained layers is investigated by numerical analysis. The effects of delta-strained layers on optical gains are very sensitive to the location and the number of the layers. Among the various structures investigated, the quantum well with two delta-strained layers has the least polarization sensitivity for wide wavelength and injected carrier density ranges.
