Using the coherent radiation-exciton interaction model, the phenomenon of non-linear refraction has been investigated analytically in the important III-V semiconductors duly irradiated by laser beams with photon energies in the vicinity of the crystal band edges in the presence of a large steady magnetic field. Phenomenological introduction of a damping constant is shown to explain the saturation mechanism. The results can be compared with those obtainable from the direct saturation model.
