Paper Abstract

We report the observation of external switching of the reflectivity from the InSb surface by a plasma enhanced absorption mechanism. A HeNe laser and a pulsed CO2 laser were used as probe beam and switching beam respectively. We also report reflectivity switching initiated as a result of a thermal effect in the InSb surface.
