Paper Abstract

The interaction of optical radiation with a semiconductor is analyzed by means of a numerical simulation. Two-dimensional effects are discussed. The influence of heat conduction on longitudinal kinks formation is considered in detail. It is shown that temperature dependence of a charge carriers lifetime can lead to periodical oscillations of electron concentration and semiconductor temperature. An influence of light-induced charge carries on switching waves is discussed. The sphere of applicability for widely known models of thermal optical bistability is determined.
