We report on all optical spatially resolved spin diffusion experiments in an unstrained, unbiased n-GaAs layer. Optical pump and probe intensities are varied over a wide range to study the impact of optical disturbance on spin transport. Both quantities have a considerable influence on the measured spin diffusion length and spin lifetime. Furthermore, an effective spin diffusion coefficient was obtained as a function of temperature.
