Polarization revival of a Bloch-oscillating wave packet in conjunction with resonant Zener tunneling
Polarisationserneuerung einer Bloch-oszillierenden Wellenpackets in Verbindung mit resonanten Zenertunneln
We investigate the dynamics of a Bloch-oscillating wave packet in the presence of strong coupling to delocalized above barrier states (Zener tunneling), using time-resolved intraband polarization-sensitive measurements. At a threshold electric field, the resonance of localized and delocalized states causes a quantum beating which is observed as a revival in the intraband polarization. Our numerical simulation visualizes the spatial wave packet decomposition and reformation. The wave packet moves on a ps time scale over a distance of more than 100 nm and sequentially undergoes Bloch oscillations in the below- and above-barrier bands.
