Anisotropy and nonlinearity in superlattices

Article English OPEN
Pereira, Mauro (2016)

This paper uses analytical expressions for the nonlinear optical absorption of superlattices by treating them as anisotropic media. The controllable system shows that the nonlinearities increase with anisotropy suggesting that strongly anisotropic materials such as those used for solar cells may also be useful for nonlinear optical applications.
