Paper Abstract

There is an always growing interest in the study and characterization of new nonlinear optical materials with higher nonlinear coefficients and fast responses, especially for their potential applications in the telecommunications, in the optical computing, and in several other fields where the main issues are high bit rates, parallel processing and large mass storage. The semiconductor technology allowed the construction of very complicated structures, the multiple quantum wells (MPWs), with resonant nonlinearities far bigger than those available in semiconductor crystals, and pushing further the quantum confinement to comprise all the three space dimensions (quantum dots, QDs) is the next step toward even better performances.
