|dc.description.abstract||We report a method for determining photo-excited free-carrier recombination time in semiconductors. This method is based on the simulation of single-beam Z scans with laser pulses of two different widths: 25 ps and 7 ns (FWHM). By conducting Z scans with laser pulses of 25-ps duration, the two-photon absorption coefficient, the nonlinear refractive index, and the refractive index change induced by an electron-hole pair excited by two-photon absorption are first determined unambiguously. While using these nonlinear parameters in Z scans obtained with 7-ns laser pulses, the lifetimes of two-photon-excited free carriers are accurately extracted to be 7.0±1.0, 2.8±0.3, and 18±4 ns in semiconductors ZnSe, ZnO, and ZnS, respectively. © Springer-Verlag 1997.|
