We analyze the electron mobility in asymmetric double quantum wells by introducing different doping concentrations in the barriers and also by taking different well widths. We show that the asymmetry induced changes in the subband wave functions, energy levels and occupation of subbands lead to enhancement in subband mobility in a multisubband occupied system through the intersubband interactions.
