Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Studies are presented that combine optical and THz excitation in the linear and nonlinear regimes. The analysis focuses on exciton formation and decay, the plasmonic response, THz gain, excitonic Rabi flopping, and quantum-state control.
