Paper Abstract

Nonlinear optical properties of semiconductor superlattices are examined theoretically. We have studied the third-order nonlinear susceptibility of semiconductor superlattices due to the band nonparabolicity, intervalence-hand transitions, and photo-excited plasma effects. We found that x(3) of semiconductor superlattices are in general (up to two orders of magnitude) larger than that of the corresponding hulk semiconductors.
