Abstract

A microscopic theory of the third order coherent semiconductor optical response is used for the investigation of four-wave mixing signals. The theory is based on the dynamics-controlled truncation formalism and evaluated for the case of resonant excitation of heavy-hole excitons. This approach allows for a direct comparison with other theories (microscopic or phenomenological), and yields a detailed understanding of important many-body effects such as excitation-induced dephasing.
