All-THz pump-probe spectroscopy of the intersubband AC-Stark effect in a wide GaAs quantum well
We report the observation of the intersubband AC-Stark effect in a single wide GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well. In a three-level configuration, the n = 2 to n = 3 intersubband transition is resonantly pumped at 3:5 THz using a free-electron laser. The induced spectral changes are probed using THz time-domain spectroscopy with a broadband pulse extending up to 4 THz. We observe an Autler Townes splitting at the 1 -> 2 intersubband transition as well as an indication of a Mollow triplet at the 2 -> 3 transition, both evidencing the dressed states. For longer delay times, a relaxation of the hot-electron system with a time constant of around 420 ps is measured.
