Systematic studies of amplitude and energy changes of excitonic lines in a strong excitation regime were carried out by a pump-probe method. The series of samples containing quantum wells with well width from 80 Å to 140 Å was investigated. One 80 Å sample was n-doped with iodine, the rest of the quantum wells were intentionally undoped but contained a 2D gas of free holes. Its density could be varied by changing an intensity of additional illumination. The resonant creation of high population of e1hh1 excitons causes the energetic blue shift of the same due to interactions between excitons. The blue shift did not depend on the concentration of 2D gas of carriers whereas it did depend on the power of excitation beam. Model calculations of absorption show qualitative agreement with the experimental data.
