Abstract

We present a novel heterodyne‐detected four‐wave mixing technique, which determines the third‐order nonlinear polarization in phase and amplitude by spectral interferometry. It allows us to measure the resonant transient four‐wave mixing of single localized excitons, both frequency and time‐resolved. In the signal, the strength of the coupling between two probed exciton transitions is directly observable. Applying a strong optical pump pulse, we observe optical Rabi oscillations of the exciton polarization. Observing decay of the third‐order polarization after the pump pulse, we can exclude the presence of signi£cant excitation‐induced dephasing.
