We theoretically investigate the simultaneous formation and stable propagation of slow optical soliton pairs in semiconductor quantum dots with a four-level biexciton-exciton cascade configuration. Owing to the destructive interference set up by two continuous wave control fields that couple to a biexciton state, the linear as well as nonlinear dispersion(More)
We propose and analyze an efficient way to enhance four-wave mixing (FWM) signals in a four-subband semiconductor quantum well via Fano-type interference. By using Schrödinger-Maxwell formalism, we derive explicitly analytical expressions for the input probe pulse and the generated FWM field in linear regime under the steady-state condition. With the aid of(More)
We analyze the hybrid absorptive-dispersive optical bistability (OB) behavior in an open Λ-type three-level atomic system by using a microwave field to drive the hyperfine transition between two lower states, along with the consideration of incoherent pumping and spontaneously generated coherence. Different from the closed system, we show that the bistable(More)
We study ultrafast excitonic population inversion resulting from the interaction of a semiconductor quantum dot (SQD) with localized surface plasmons. The plasmonic enhanced fields are generated when a metallic nanoparticle (MNP) is subject to a nonlinear chirped few-cycle pulse train. By numerically solving the time-dependent Bloch equations beyond the(More)
We conducted a theoretical investigation of the optical steady-state behavior in N four-level Y-type atoms driven coherently by a probe laser and a single elliptically polarized field (EPF) by means of a unidirectional ring cavity. It was found that the optical bistability can be observed for a wide regime of frequency detuning of the probe field, intensity(More)
We propose a scheme to generate three coupled ultraslow optical solitons in a five-level tripod atomic system. We show that the detrimental distortions of the three weak probe fields due to dispersion effects under weak driving conditions can be well balanced by self-and cross-phase-modulation effects, which leads to the three coupled ultraslow temporal(More)
We propose a graphene-based full valley- and spin-polarization device based on strained graphene with Rashba spin orbit coupling and magnetic barrier. The underlying mechanism is the coexistence of the valley and single spin band gaps in a certain Fermi energy. By aligning the Fermi energy in the valley and single spin band gaps, remarkable valley- and(More)

We investigated the edge states and quantum phase transition in graphene under an in-plane effective exchange field. The result shows that the combined effects of the in-plane effective exchange field and a staggered sublattice potential can induce zero-energy flat bands of edge states. Such flat-band edge states can evolve into helical-like ones in the(More)
