Optical nonlinearity in the yellow luminescence (YL) band of GaN was investigated using thick bulk samples. Transient pump-probe measurements revealed strong transmission changes due to two-photon absorption (TPA) even at the middle of the YL band. The TPA coefficient evaluated reaches ∼5 cm/GW at about 1.3 eV, which was as large as the mid-gap resonance. The TPA spectrum clearly showed that the observed large nonlinearity originated from the YL band. On the basis of efficient TPA in the YL band, relaxation processes in the multiphoton-induced photoluminescence excitation spectrum were also investigated.
