Abstract
We propose and theoretically investigate a two-photon four wave mixing experiment to probe for BEC of excitons in Cu2O thin films. A relatively simple set of equations describing the dynamics of the system is obtained for a particular configuration of the exciting beams, and numerical and approximate analytical solutions are found. The resulting phase-conjugated signal vs. the delay time between the pump and probe pulses yields a direct measure of the time evolution of the exciton condensate, and exhibit peaks when the film thickness is a multiple of a half wavelength of light.
