Abstract

We investigate optical Kerr response under two-pump pulse irradiation induced by GaAs weakly confined exciton. Ultrafast response times of the order of picoseconds are observed despite long exciton lifetime of the order of nanoseconds. The difference may be attributed to the relaxation mechanisms between population relaxation and nonlinear relaxation of excitons. In addition, the observed temporal shapes of the optical Kerr response are conserved under irradiation by a preceding pulse that forms the exciton population. The pulse separation of the optical Kerr response between two pump pulses is achieved to be 800 fs, which corresponds to a signal train of 1.25 Tbits per second.
