Paper Abstract

It is shown numerically that a thin layer of semiconductor quantum dots has a threshold transmission characteristic for the ultrashort incident pulse. Weak pulses mainly reflect from layer while pulses with amplitudes above the threshold mainly transmit. The coherent interaction of optical pulses with the layer of quantum dots causes the forming of peaks of superradiation on the profile of transmitted pulses. The phenomenon is accompanied by rapid temporal evolution of ellipticity and azimuth angle across the pulse duration.
