It is shown that the nature and extent of wavefunction localisation of miniband states in an external electric field can be markedly different for finite superlattice structures, compared with infinite and is dependent on the strength of interaction between the initial electron (and hole) miniband states. The question of blue shifts and excitonic effects is described and possible device applications for strongly interacting superlattices structures are discussed.
