Abstract
We investigate nonlinear midinfrared detection via twophoton transitions involving two bound subbands and one continuum resonance in an ntype multiple quantum well. By varying the excitation energy, we have tuned the twophoton transition from resonant, yielding optimum resonant enhancement with a real intermediate state, to nearlyresonant, with a virtual but resonantly enhanced intermediate state. For autocorrelation purposes, the latter configuration improves time resolution whilst partially retaining a resonant enhancement of the twophoton transition strength.

Photocurrent vs. delay time for excitation resonant with the intermediate state (a) and detuned excitation (b), envelopes (c), and Fourier transforms (d) of the signals in (a) and (b). The calculated behavior for ideal autocorrelation is also shown. The insets of (a) and (b) indicate the respective potential diagrams, level configurations, and optical transitions.
