Abstract:

Two different areas of research were conducted I Development of a photoacoustic detection scheme using nanosecond laser pulses, and its application to semiconductors research, in particular, the study of two-photon absorption in ZnS II Study of nonlinear optical effects in the excitonic region of CdS. In this work, bound exciton laser action was investigated in detail, employing a new cavity configuration.
