    Band-gap narrowing due to photogeneration of dense hot electron-hole plasma in GaAs was studied. Plasma was generated by picosecond light pulses, and picosecond superluminescence was observed. In this case, the total concentration of photogenerated electron-hole pairs was experimentally proved...

    We discuss the techniques and describe the circuitry to build a visible diode laser picosecond light source. The rf circuitry is easy and inexpensive to build, and the final package is quite compact. Stable, low jitter, 10[sup 8]-Hz trains of ∼ 100-ps, 670-nm optical pulses are therefore...
