The optical properties of wide quantum wells are considered, taking into account the screened electron-hole interaction potential and parabolic confinement potentials, different for the electrons and for the holes. The role of the interaction potential which mixes the energy states according to different quantum numbers is stressed. The results obtained by our method are in agreement with the observed spectra and give the possibility to the assessment of the resonances.
