Abstract

A phenomenological multi-exciton level scheme is used to calculate the excitonic differential absorption as measured in pump and probe experiments. Numerical results are compared to those obtained by a fully microscopic density-matrix theory. For resonant excitation, optimized parameters yield qualitative agreement, but the phenomenological approach soon reaches its limit for non-resonant pumping.
