Abstract

Recently, a dependence of Rabi flopping on the carrier-envelope phase of the exciting laser pulses was predicted theoretically [Phys. Rev. Lett. 89, 127401 (2002)] for excitation of a thin semiconductor film with intense few-cycle pulses. Here, we report corresponding experiments on 50-100-nm thin GaAs films excited with 5-fs pulses. We find a dependence on the carrier-envelope phase arising from the interference of sidebands from the fundamental or the third-harmonic Mollow triplet, respectively, with surface second-harmonic generation.
