Paper Abstract

The origine of the nonlinear optical properties of semiconductors are discussed. We treat in detail 3 examples for electronic mechanisms: a) induced exciton absorption due to dynamical line-broadening; b) the band-edge nonlinearities due to plasma band-filling, screening, and renormalization; and c) the coherent band-edge nonlinearities for ultra-short pulse excitation.
