D. A. B. Miller, D. S. Chemla, A. C. Gossard and P. W. Smith, "Room Temperature Optical Nonlinear Absorption and Refraction in GaAs Multiple Quantum Wells" in "Optical Bistability 2" (Proceedings of the Conference on Optical Bistability, Rochester, 1983) ed. C. M. Bowden, H. M. Gibbs and S. L. McCall (Plenum, New York, 1984), 273-278.

A brief review is given ot the nonlinear optical properties of room-temperature GaAs multiple quantum wells. These materials show very large nonlinear absorption and refraction near their exciton resonances. Furthermore, they are dierctly compatible with laser diodes. C.W. nonlinear optics has recently been demonstrated for the first time with a laser diode as the sole light source.
