Paper Abstract

Nonlocal formulation has been applied to a pump probe process (optical Stark effect) for an exciton-biexciton system in a slab of CuCl of thickness d equals 100 - 10000 angstroms. The evolution of the pump probe spectra shows the development of wave number selection rule with increasing d, reflecting the d-dependent spatial variation of radiation field. The spectra contain several different processes at the same time; two-photon absorption to biexciton states, the optical Stark shift and pump induced resonant broadening of exciton levels. The direction of optical Stark shift can be well interpreted by the pump induced change in the linear susceptibility. A comparison with the experiments for thicker samples shows a good agreement for d equals 1500 angstroms sample, but a marked disagreement for micrometers size samples. A comparison with a former theory has been made both analytically and numerically.
