Paper Abstract

Femtosecond transient transmission measurements are used to investigate the scattering and relaxation dynamics of nonequilibrium carriers in GaAs thin film. With a nonequilibrium energy-balance model, the cooling process of hot carriers via emission of phonons is simulated. It is found that, the fitting parameter (lambda) is close to the Frohlich constant (alpha) F qualitatively and decreases with increasing excited carrier density. It reveals that the carrier-LO phonon coupling is the main way of the cooling of hot carriers and the coupling will be weaken by the nonequilibrium phonon effect.
