Intense Terahertz Excitation of Semiconductors

S. D. Ganichev

W. Prettl

Oxford University Press

This chapter is concerned with multiphoton transitions in the perturbative limit and beyond, resulting in fully developed nonlinearity where quantum interference effects control the absorption of photons. Of particular interest is the range beyond the perturbation limit which represents the transition from multiphoton absorption to tunneling. This transition is experimentally accessible only in the THz-range. The required intensities are very high but at THz frequencies still below the damage limit.

Keywords:   multiphoton absorption, tunneling, nonperturbative limit, nonlinear transmission, photon drag effect, superlattices
