We demonstrate coherent optical control of phonon oscillations using a femtosecond control pulse. The experiments were performed in InGaN/GaN multiple quantum wells. Coherent acoustic phonon oscillations was initiated with an UV femtosecond pulse. The subsequent manipulation, including magnitude and phase, of the coherent acoustic phonon oscillations was achieved using another UV femtosecond pulse by controlling the pulse time delay and intensity. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    It is shown that capture of the surface (interface) phonons can occur in a double-barrier heterostructure in addition to the capture of bulk polar optical phonons. The strength of interaction of electrons with confined interface phonons becomes lower as the thickness of the phonon well (a...
