Coherent transfer of energy (CTE) gives rise to a new peak and dip in the probe gain spectrum that move proportionally with the intracavity injected power showing that stimulated emission and absorption significantly speed up the semiconductor response. Gain modification is seen in two nondegenerate, cross-polarized modes of a microcavity laser when light is injected into only one mode, giving strong evidence for the CTE origin of the gain asymmetry.
