Paper Abstract

The dynamics of excitonic transitions in semiconductors have been investigated by degenerate four-wave mixing experiments. We have studied the coherence, interference and dephasing of free, bound and localized excitons in bulk semiconductors and of quasi-2D excitons in quantum well structures. The influence of inhomogeneous broadening is investigated and compared with quantum interference in a continuum of states. The nature of four-wave mixing beats in a system of bound excitons and biexcitons is discussed.
