Paper Abstract

We have examined the ultrafast relaxation of electrons photoexcited by infrared laser pulses in AlN using ensemble Monte Carlo approach. The effects of doping, excitation levels, energy, and pulse duration were investigated. It is found that even at excitation energies above the G-U separation, the role of intervalley scattering is weaker compared to polar optical scattering. This is more significant at longer pulse duration.
