This paper discusses recent studies involving time-resolved optical and terahertz (THz) fields in the linear and nonlinear regime. An overview of the microscopic modeling scheme is presented and applied to analyze a variety of experimental results. The examples include coherent excitons in weak and strong THz fields, Rabi splitting and ionization of intra-excitonic transitions, THz studies in semiconductor microcavities, and the THz manipulation of excitonic transitions.
