Abstract

The saturation of interband magneto-absorption in Indium Antimonide at low incident intensities is reported. The measurement of the lineshape and saturation characteristic for transitions between a nearly isolated pair of Landau levels, is interpreted in terms of a blocking model incorporating Lorentzian broadening of transitions and a thermalised carrier distribution, yielding estimates of the carrier recombination time (T1 ∼ 1 ns) and dephasing time (T2 ∼ 3 ps).
