Resonance interaction of electromagnetic fields with semiconductors
Abstract
A new nonlinear kinetic theory is presented for the resonance interaction between an electromagnetic field and semiconductors. The treatment is based on new concepts of specific quasiparticles whose kinetics is described by renormalized equations. These concepts are used to develop the absorption saturation theory for a strong electromagnetic field, semiconductor laser theory, and the theory of field pulse transmission by semiconductors. It is shown that the interaction with a strong field gives rise to a number of new phenomena, one of which is the formation of a gap in the semiconductor electron spectrum.
