The polarization dependence of gain dynamics in a bulk semiconductor optical amplifier has been investigated using a 2.5 ps pump-probe set-up in a counter-propagation configuration. A theoretical model based on the carrier density rate equation has been developed to simulate the experiment. Comparison of experimental and computational results highlights the… CONTINUE READING
