Optical limiting in Bragg-spaced semiconductor quantum wells

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

We propose a new mechanism for optical limiting in which nonlinear absorption and nonlinear reflection act in concert. The mechanism is based on the light-induced shift of the band gap in Bragg-spaced semiconductor quantum wells.
