The paper considers absorption of linearly polarized radiation in a semiconductor size-quantized well related to optical transitions both between the branches of light and heavy holes and between the size-quantized subbands. Main features of the light absorption in an infinitely deep symmetric well are elucidated. These features are characterized by intraband absorption of light and associated with the direct optical transitions of holes between the subbands of the semiconductor valence band formed due to the size quantization.
