The coupling of THz and intersubband excitations leads to THz polaritons and antipolaritons and has great potential for device applications. In this paper, based on the dielectric function formalism, we investigate the relevance of controlling cavity resonance and dephasing in the THz polariton and antipolariton dispersions. The input optical dielectric constant stems from numerically exact nonequilibrium many body solutions which are adjusted to a simplified nonlinear dielectric susceptibility. The resulting expression is inserted in the wave equation to describe the coupling of TE- polarized THz radiation and intervalence band transitions in GaAs/Al0.3Ga0.7As multiple quantum well structures with various resonance conditions.
