Coherent Phonon Control

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Trains of ultrashort laser pulses have been used to generate and to coherently control acoustic phonons in bulk InSb. The coherent acoustic phonons have been probed via time-resolved x-ray diffraction. The authors show that phonons of a particular frequency can either be enhanced or canceled. They have carried out simulations to understand the size of the effects and the levels of cancellation. (c) 2007 American Institute of Physics.
