Band offset is the fraction of the bandgap difference between two materials that occurs in the conduction band versus the valence band. It essentially tells you how large the barrier to carriers is in the valence band and conduction band, since the bandgap offset is not generally split evenly between the two. It is important to know accurately because it will influence the calculations of where the energy levels are in the conduction and valence band. (1) GaAs based lasers: ΔE
