Abstract

An impact of transient population gratings on superradiant emission from semiconductor laser structures is studied. Strong transient periodic modulation of e-h density dramatically affects the superradiance mechanism in semiconductor media and is able to account for recent observations of superluminal pulse propagation and anomalous second harmonic generation.
