Abstract

We investigate the coherent dynamics of excitonic wavepackets in semiconductors driven by intense narrowband THz pulses. Time-resolved THz-pump and optical-probe measurements demonstrate strong nonlinear-optical transients of the light-hole and heavy-hole excitonic resonances in GaAs/AlGaAs QWs.
