Abstract

The coherent control of the nonlinear optical response of quantum-well excitons in a resonant high-Q microcavity was examined. There are two significant advantages to using excitons in microcavities instead of `bare' quantum wells: the multiple reflections which occur in the cavity strongly enhance the optical nonlinearity, enabling large-signal coherent control; and 2-color coherent control may be implemented, where a pump pulse tuned to one of the normal modes of the coupled exciton-microcavity system can control the response of a probe tuned to the other normal mode. The nonlinear response of the normal modes is due to the nonlinearity of the underlying exciton transition.
