Abstract

The theory of pulse propagation in semiconductors requires the inclusion of both field and material current as dynamical variables, which have to be determined self-consistently, thus arriving on the level of coupled semiconductor Maxwell-Bloch equations. The discussed approach includes electron-electron interaction on the level of quantum kinetic equations for the material current and accounts for polarization and particle scattering of electrons and phonons as well as for a scalar or vector wave equation of the electromagnetic field. In this paper, the theoretical description of the coupled spatiotemporal dynamics on short time and space scales is discussed and illustrated with several examples.
