Ultrashort Coherent Excitations in Semiconductors

  • Walter E. Bron
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 330)


The origin of this line of research was marked by the realization that optical four-wave mixing techniques can be used to generate coherent excitations in matter(1). The four-wave mixing technique of particular interest here is “Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering” (CARS) and its time-resolved (TRCARS) version(2). A semiclassical theoretical description of these nonlinear processes has been presented by Placzek(3).
