Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


A method to calculate the propagation problem for bulk material with boundaries in the propagation direction is presented. On a microscopic level, the semiconductor polarization which is self-consistently coupled to the propagating light field, without phenomenological assumptions other than a linear background dephasing rate, is demonstrated. The computer transmission spectra were used to explain experimental results for high-quality GaAs.
