Abstract

We perform degenerate and nondegenerate pump-probe experiments on bulk GaAs at 100 K below the band gap. We mostly observe a negative differential transmission signal both in the degenerate and nondegenerate experiments. We interpret our signal as due to two-photon absorption. This negative signal has a different origin from the normally considered band gap renormalization for resonant excitations.
