We perform the possibility to generate a dimer -symmetric model based on a double lambda four-level system in GaAs/AlGaAs quantum wells with biexcitonic transitions. By presenting the detuning management and modulating the Rabi frequencies of the two strong coupling laser fields, we show that the -symmetric model can be realized by the spatial evolution of the weak probe laser and four-wave mixing (FWM)-generated field along the propagation direction. The two weak fields in our model may be used to simulate two laser propagating in two -symmetric parallel waveguides. The diffraction effect also can be studied in some conditions. Our scheme offers two advantages: the complex refractive index is controlled by the strong coupling fields; the symmetry energy exchange between a dimer -symmetric structure is guaranteed by the four-wave mixing process. The present investigation may provide research opportunities in optical experiments.
