A scheme to generate an experimentally measurable current echo is proposed where current pulses are induced by a sequence of phase coherent optical pulses. Based on microscopic calculations for a one-dimensional tight-bindig model of a disordered two-band semiconductor it is predicted that excitation sequences can be taylored such that after two induced time-delayed current pulses a current echo pulse results.
