Abstract

A microscopic theory is used to study femtosecond pulse propagation through a semiconductor microcavity containing one or more quantum wells. The ultrafast cavity mode build-up is investigated and the dynamical interplay of the field with the quantum-well electron-hole excitations is analyzed. Normal-mode coupling as well as radiative coupling between the quantum wells is shown to depend strongly on the placement of the quantum wells inside the microcavity.
