Transient gratings commonly have been used to determine ambipolar diffusion coefficients in semiconductors. The ambipolar diffusion coefficient characterizes the transport of a nonuniform distribution of equal densities of electrons and holes. We recently have demonstrated a new method that allows a measurement of the electron diffusion coefficient, which then provides both the electron and hole drift mobilities in the same sample.1
