Paper Abstract

We have characterized the ultrafast solid-liquid transition of InSb and CdTe semiconductors by time resolved x-ray diffraction in the femtosecond timescale. Visible spectroscopic data were obtained together with x-ray measurements to characterize the dense electron-ho9le plasma at the origin of the phase transition following the IR excitation.
