Abstract

A two-dimensional model to describe the photorefractive behavior of a semiconductor multiple-quantum-well structure operating in the longitudinal geometry has been formulated. It takes into account longitudinal and transverse transport as well as both components of the space-charge field. The rate equations have been solved in the short-time regime, and the role of the various geometrical and physical parameters has been investigated. Special attention has been paid to clarifying the effects of transverse transport.
