Abstract

The nonlinear propagation of subpicosecond pulses resonant to the hh 1s exciton in Bragg-periodic multiple quantum wells is investigated experimentally and theoretically. We show coherent pulse breakup and its suppression for increasing pulse intensity in good agreement with calculations based on the semiconductor Maxwell-Bloch equations. For highly nonlinear excitation, pulse compression is observed which is strongly enhanced by the additional contribution of self-phase modulation in the barrier and substrate material.
