We study the effect of the carrier-envelope-phase (CEP) on the high harmonic generation (HHG) from a quantum ring driven by two short orthogonal lasers polarized along the x and y axes. In particular, by varying only the phase of the laser polarized along y it is possible to control the intensity of the emitted harmonics. In fact, we show that the system can efficiently emit harmonics if the laser polarized along y is small and that the cut-off of the spectra can be controlled by changing the phase or the intensity ratio between the two lasers. The wavelet analysis of the emitted harmonics and the time dependence of the angular momentum and of the energy acquired by the electron show that the electron has several main angular momentum variations that generate the cut-off harmonics in as many pulses. These results may have a significant technological impact in computer technology to store information. The implementation of a logical gate that exploits the different temporal locations of the pulses is discussed.
