This paper analyzes the interaction of a strong wave and one or two probe waves with an intrinsic semiconductor medium which is partially inverted by an injection current. The many-body interactions of the electron-hole excitations are described using recently developed generalized Bloch equations for semiconductors. Coupled-mode equations for the different light fields are derived and solved, and predict that the gain and the coupling coefficients experience asymmetric dips. These dips are generated by scattering of the strong field off carrier-density pulsations induced by the pump-probe interference.
