Abstract

The optimum condition for achieving highly efficient ultrafast all-optical pulse modulation by modification of the absorption of a pulsed interband light field by ultrasubband control-light pulses in a doped quantum well is investigated. The modulation efficiency in the femtosecond domain can be maximized by an intersubband control light with a pulse width (200 fs) that is comparable with the phase-relaxation time of the system and an intensity that is close to the intersubband saturation intensity.
