Abstract

A theoretical semi-classical method to calculate the modulated field profile in a semiconductor is presented. The behavior of quasi-Fermi levels and chemical potentials for the majority and minority carriers is investigated. Systematic studies of the non-thermodynamic equilibrium electric potential profile as a function of the modulation light intensity are performed.
