Among the state manipulation, Rabi oscillation is a fundamental phenomenon by coherent optical coupling, which provides a direct control to the state population and coherence of a quantum system.
Herein biexciton Rabi oscillation is simply a function of the field intensity of the light.
The phase control of two-photon Rabi oscillation for the biexciton system can be easily implemented experimentally.
The two-photon Rabi oscillation of the biexciton state in a semiconductor quantum dot has been investigated theoretically.

In this paper, we investigate Rabi oscillations of the biexciton in a semiconductor QD, based on a resonant degenerate two-photon excitation [17, 18] with both [[PI].sub.x] and [[PI].sub.y] components.
Among the implementation of hardware design for quantum computing such as cavity QED, ion trap, nuclear magnetic resonance, quantum dots, and superconducting systems [1], cavity QED is one of the most promising schemes because the basic interaction within cavity QED is the vacuum Rabi oscillation and the strong coupling of cavity field and atom allows atom-photon system to maintain good quantum coherence within the time scale of the kinetic characteristics.
In cavity QED, the foundation of quantum information processing is the Rabi oscillation, an undamped oscillation process, which can be destroyed by the spontaneous emission of the atom.
In this paper, the optical Bloch equations describing the mechanism of cavity QED are investigated to obtain the transfer function of the Rabi oscillation with the spontaneous emission [8].
We can infer from (11) that the underdamped Rabi oscillation is a typical second-order system and the open-loop transfer function is (0 < [xi] < 1):
Comparing formula (11) and (14), the parameters in the transfer function of damping Rabi oscillation can be obtained as follows:
The sloshing appears to be the artificial-molecule equivalent of what are called Rabi oscillations in excited, real molecules, the researchers say.
