The effects of a static electric field on the nonlinear optical rectification, second- and third-harmonic generation in a quantum well described by Morse potential are theoretically investigated. Analytical expressions for the optical coefficients due to intersubband optical transitions with an applied electric field are extracted from the compact-density matrix approach and iterative scheme. Numerical results presented for a typical GaAs quantum well reveal the feasibility of control of optical transitions between the size-quantized subbands. In addition, we have to emphasize the fact that the optical response of the system is remarkably sensitive to the electric field and structural range parameter.
