Huge excitonic enhancement of two-photon absorption near the exciton-transition energy was observed in the GaN system. The peak value of the nonlinear absorption coefficient is at least 1500 cm/GW, corresponding to an enhancement factor of >100. The room temperature exciton dephasing time is also obtained based on a spectral analysis to be ∼150 fs in bulk GaN, which is close to the exciton ionization time. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.

    The density and temperature dependence of the exciton dephasing time of two hexagonal GaN films on sapphire is measured using degenerate four-wave mixing (DFWM). The residual 4 ps dephasing time at low temperature and density is caused by exciton-impurity scattering. We present a theory of DFWM...
