Dynamics of free and bound excitons in CdSe, localized excitons in CdSexS1-x, and confined two-dimensional excitons in GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells have been studied by degenerate four-wave mixing and light-induced grating experiments. In the coherent range, the dephasing of excitons has been determined as a function of temperature, density, and energy. For incoherent excitons, we have determined recombination lifetimes and diffusion coefficients. In particular, we have studied the mobility of excitons in CdSexS1-x near the mobility edge. Quantum interferences are observed in the nonlinear signal from these exciton systems, and the nature of these four-wave mixing beats are being discussed.
