This paper uses the anisotropic medium approach to calculate nonlinear optical absorption in semiconductor superlattices. The study confirms that the nonlinearities increase with anisotropy suggesting that strongly anisotropic materials such as those used for solar cells may also play a relevant role for nonlinear optical applications.
