Paper Abstract

Electric-field-induced non-equilibrium carrier distributions in GaAs-based p-i-n nanostructure semiconductors has been studied by transient Raman spectroscopy on a picosecond time scale and at T approximately equals 80 K. For an injected carrier density of n approximately equals 2.2 X 1018 cm-3 and electric field intensity E equals 25 KV/cm, the drift velocity of electrons as high as Vd equals 2.5 X 107 cm/sec was observed. We demonstrate in this work that time-resolved Raman spectroscopy is a feasible technique to interrogate both ballistic transport and velocity overshoot phenomena in nanostructure semiconductors.
