We present simultaneous measurement of femtosecond time-resolved nonlinear phase and amplitude changes around the excitonic resonance of the AlGaAs/GaAs quantum well using polarization-division Sagnac interferometer. The nonlinear complex refractive index of the semiconductor material for all-optical devices is successfully determined from directly measured nonlinear phase and amplitude changes.

    We find that quasiparticle generation from stray infrared light creates a significant loss mechanism in superconducting resonators and qubits. We show that resonator quality factors and qubit energy relaxation times are limited by a quasiparticle density of approximately 200 μm-3, induced by...
