ABSTRACT
Using a degenerate pump–probe technique on the Brewster configuration at room temperature, we investigate the dynamics of the intersubband transition in GaN/AlN multiple-quantum wells. The relaxation dynamics is found to consist of ultrafast (∼140 fs) and slower (∼1.3 ps) components. We estimate the third-order susceptibility for the Brewster configuration to be ∼5.5×10[sup -18] m[sup 2]/V[sup 2], which indicates that its value becomes ∼2.2×10[sup -16] m[sup 2]/V[sup 2] when a light beam is parallel to the well. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.
