Annotation The quantum mechanical theory of spectral parameters and dynamic conductivity of electrons, interacting with field of the created by them space charge in open flat resonance tunneling structure with a constant electric field in the model of rectangular potential wells and barriers has been developed. The influence of space charge on the conductivity of the experimentally realized nanostructures as the active region of a quantum cascade laser for different concentrations of electrons in the falling on the resonance tunneling structure beam, has been investigated.
