We report on the intensity dependent supralinear photoconductivity in GaAs:Si:Cu material. The results of our measurements show that the effective carrier lifetime can change over two orders of magnitude with variations in the intensity of the optical excitation. Numerical simulations have also been carried out to analyze the effect. The intensity dependent lifetimes obtained from the simulations match the experiments very well. Such a nonlinear intensity dependence could have possible low-energy phototransistor applications.
