Abstract

This paper considers the case of linear optical properties which presents the problem of light propagation with spatial dispersion. This problem is addressed in a direct way by computing the coupled dynamics of the exciton wavefunction and the propagating electromagnetic field. Within this microscopic treatment the correct quantum-mechanical boundary condition is used for the exciton wavefunction, eliminating the need for additional boundary conditions for the macroscopic polarization. The numerical calculations presented here require massively parallel techniques on present-day supercomputers. The results compare favorably with the transmission amplitude and phase spectra of a thin very high-quality GaAs sample.
