Abstract

Terahertz time-domain spectroscopy together with femtosecond optical excitation has been applied to probe transient conductivity in normally insulating materials. The conductivity, its temporal evolution, and its temperature dependence yield carrier scattering rate, excitation density, dynamics and scattering mechanisms.
