Abstract

The influence of doping on the ultrafast carrier dynamics in InSb has been studied by time-resolved terahertz spectroscopy with photogenerated carrier densities from ${1.5} \times {{1}}{{{0}}^{18}}$ to ${9.5} \times {{1}}{{{0}}^{19}}\;{\rm{c}}{{\rm{m}}^{- 3}}$ at 800 nm. The photoinduced absorption and carrier recovery process show doping type dependence. The carrier recovery time of intrinsic InSb is greater than that of p-doped InSb but less than that of n-doped InSb at low carrier densities. At high carrier densities, compared with intrinsic InSb, the doped InSb is more prone to transient Auger recombination, which indicates that the appearance of the fast decay process depends on the carrier densities. The photoinduced absorption of terahertz probe pulse of n-doped InSb is significantly less than that of p-doped and intrinsic InSb; however, that of p-doped InSb is close to that of intrinsic InSb, which demonstrates that the high concentration of electrons can accelerate the efficiency of transient Auger recombination. Our analysis provides assistance to the design, manufacture, and improvement of photovoltaic detectors.
