Coherent-control protocols are introduced to selectively transport electrons, excitons, or pure two-particle correlations through semiconductor interfaces. The scheme is tested in a double-quantum-well structure where a sequence of terahertz pulses is applied to induce the vertical excitation transfer between the wells. Using a microscopic theory, it is shown that efficient and highly selective transfer can be realized even in the presence of the unavoidable scattering and dephasing processes.
