New insights into the initial dynamics of resonantly-excited quantum wells are obtained using a novel technique of excitation by a pair of phase-locked pulses and femtosecond gated detection of the emitted radiation. In experiments at various delays and phases between the excitation pulses we identify for the first time three different contributions to the secondary emission with different coherence properties in space and time.
