Publication# ELECTRO-OPTIC EFFECTS AND ELECTROABSORPTION IN A GaAs/AlGaAs MULTIQUANTUM-WELL HETEROSTRUCTURE NEAR THE BANDGAP

Abstract

We report phase difference measurements at 50 and 30 mev from the excitonic peak of a GaAs/AlGaAs multiquantum-well structure. We find pronounced dispersion of the quadratic effect; in contrast, we see no indication of dispersion in the linear effect even this close to the bandgap.

Kerr effect

The Kerr effect, also called the quadratic electro-optic (QEO) effect, is a change in the refractive index of a material in response to an applied electric field. The Kerr effect is distinct from the Pockels effect in that the induced index change is directly proportional to the square of the electric field instead of varying linearly with it. All materials show a Kerr effect, but certain liquids display it more strongly than others. The Kerr effect was discovered in 1875 by Scottish physicist John Kerr.

Linear regression

In statistics, linear regression is a linear approach for modelling the relationship between a scalar response and one or more explanatory variables (also known as dependent and independent variables). The case of one explanatory variable is called simple linear regression; for more than one, the process is called multiple linear regression. This term is distinct from multivariate linear regression, where multiple correlated dependent variables are predicted, rather than a single scalar variable.

Pockels effect

The Pockels effect or Pockels electro-optic effect, also known as the linear electro-optic effect, is named after Friedrich Carl Alwin Pockels who studied the effect in 1893. The Pockels effect is a directionally dependent linear variation in the refractive index of an optical medium that occurs in response to the application of an electric field. The non-linear counterpart, the Kerr effect, causes changes in the refractive index at a rate proportional to the square of the applied electric field.

An exact pulse for the parametrically forced nonlinear Schrodinger equation (NLS) is isolated. The equation governs wave envelope propagation in dispersion-managed fiber lines with positive residual dispersion. The pulse is obtained as a ground state of an ...

A nonlinear coefficient of 3.6–4.1 W−1 km−1 and group velocity dispersion of −20 ps2∕km of a commercial corepumped thulium-doped fiber have been evaluated using degenerate four-wave mixing at 2 μm. The anomalous dispersion behavior of the fiber has been co ...
