Abstract

Excitonic nonlinearities in semiconductor microcavities are studied within a semiclassical theory based on Maxwell's equations and generalized semiconductor Bloch equations. Results are presented analyzing the saturation of excitonic normal-mode coupling due to an incoherent thermalized carrier plasma. The coherent nonlinear response is studied in the time domain assuming microcavity excitation with ultrashort, pulses of different intensity.
