Paper Abstract

Phenomenon of picosecond photoconductivity has gained in importance in the recent past due to ultrafast optoelectronic switching. Conductive as well as dielectric properties of the photoinduced plasma can be used to control the wave propagation depending on the wave-length of the electromagnetic waves. Possible applications of this phenomenon are enumer-ated and our recent work on multikilovolt picosecond optoelectronic switching in CdS0.5 Se0.5 is described in detail.
