ABSTRACT
Optically generated carriers are used to modulate below-gap absorption in GaAs doping superlattices. Room-temperature modulation is observed when the potential wells are deep (>=1 eV). Spatial separation of the electrons and holes leads to slow recovery of the absorption following generation of the carriers. The amplitude of the absorption modulation shows only a weak dependence on the excitation intensity.
