ABSTRACT
Demonstrates coherent generation and control of electrical currents in low-temperature-grown gallium arsenide (GaAs) at 300 K using three phase-related, 150 femtosecond pulses derived from a parametric process. Interference between single photon and nondegenerate two photon absorption amplitudes; Ballistic electric currents; Beam polarization dependence.
