Abstract

The existence of antibound excitonic molecular states is demonstrated for a binary ZnSe quantum well. Spectrally-resolved time-integrated four-wave mixing (FWM) experiments were performed in a degenerate two-beam geometry, with a frequency-doubled Ti:sapphire laser as the excitation source. The dynamics of the antibound state demonstrates that its formation and observation must clearly take place in a time and density regime where phase coherence in the total electron-hole is preserved and where coherent exciton-exciton interactions create the particular excitonic wave-function configuration with an associated nonlinear optical matrix element.
