In our experiment we created a superposition state of a quantum dot exciton, whose quantum phase is subsequently manipulated by ultrafast Stark tuning. The resulting phase shift is measured by Ramsey interference. Previously we have already shown, that the coherent phase of a QD exciton can be manipulated electrically by phase-locked RF signals . Here we have designed ultrafast BiCMOS chips for the generation of electric pulses (rise times <20 ps @ cryogenic operationality) and RF-photodiodes with embedded high quality InGaAs QDs. Electric connections have been established by short distance wire bonding. This hybrid approach enables us to perform electric phase control synchroneous to double pulse ps laser excitation. We are able to demonstrate electrically controlled phase manipulations with magnitudes up to 3π and the electric control of the QD occupancy on time scales below the dephasing time of QD exciton .
