Abstract

A quasi-dimensional analysis is presented for the N-photon interband absorption coefficients (KN) of direct-gap semiconductors. Regardless of the value of N, we show that K N ( e 2 c ) N N - 1 P 2 N - 3 n N E g 4 N - 5 F N ( N ω E g ) ,where FN varies little over the relevant range of radiation frequencies. The dominant material dependence of KN is through the energy-gap factor; the N-photon coefficient decreases as Eg4N−5.
