    The ultra-short pulse propagation in Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) structures can be modeled through the Piecewise Linear Recursive Convolution (PLRC) technique in the context of the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) solution of Maxwell's equations. Our model is based on a Lorentzian formulation of...
