    Abstract

    We present an overview of our results concerning the influence of two-pair continuum coherences onthe transient nonlinear optical response of semiconductor microcavities. We show that the interplaybetween these 4-particle coherences and the nonperturbative light-matter interaction produces highlydesirable almost decoherence-free exciton-exciton collisions on the lower polariton branch. This effectgives rise to the very different nonlinear absorption rates on the two polariton branches observed inmany experiments and make possible to reach a very-high degree of amplification in samples withlarge Rabi splitting.
