Paper Abstract

We report measurements of optically induced refractive index changes and their saturation, in an InGaAs single quantum well, centered within a linear multiple quantum well waveguide Fabry-Perot resonator using diode laser sources. A small-signal nonlinear refractive cross- section (sigma) n equals -8 X 10-20 cm3 was deduced for probe wavelengths near the TE absorption edge, and (sigma) n equals -4 X 10-20 cm3, 100 nm from the bandedge.
