Polarization dependence of heavy- and light-hole quantum beats
Research output: Contribution to journal › Research article › Contributed › peer-review
Simultaneous excitation of heavy- and light-hole quantum-well excitons with linearly polarized ultrashort laser pulses results in oscillating four-wave-mixing and pump-probe signals. These are elliptically polarized, except for exactly parallel and perpendicular incident polarizations, for which they are also linearly polarized. In the latter case, the heavy- and light-hole components are in phase or out of phase, respectively. © 1992 The American Physical Society.
