FIG. 4.

Measured (symbols) and modeled (solid curve) transmitted optical intensity as a function of the input intensity for a -long waveguide. A carrier lifetime of is used in the modeling.

FIG. 5.

Transient probe signal attenuation caused by free carriers generated by a short pump pulse. Fitting to the measurement data with an exponential curve (solid line) gives a decay time constant of .
