Abstract

An algorithm is presented for the calculation of the nondegenerate two-photon absorption coefficient by using second-order perturbation theory and a Kane band-structure model, including the effects of nonparabolicity and nonzone-center wave functions. The polarization dependence is included by correctly accounting for the symmetry of the electronic wave functions. A comparison is made with degenerate two-photon absorption data in various zinc blende semiconductors, and excellent agreement is found without the use of fitting parameters. Comparisons are also made with nondegenerate two-photon absorption spectra measured in ZnSe and ZnS by using a picosecond continuum and with some polarization-dependent measurements obtained by a two-color Z-scan measurement.
