Abstract

We demonstrate THz-induced extreme-nonlinear transients in a GaAa/AlGaAs quantum-well system. The terahertz-pump and optical-probe experiments show pronounced spectral modulations of the excitonic resonances. Microscopic many-body calculations identify clear ponderomotive contributions and THz harmonic generations.
