Phase separation such as the formation of electron-hole droplets has been observed in semiconductor electron-hole systems. In such conventional experiments, the information averaged in real space was obtained. However, in recent years, optical-near-field techniques have enabled us to acquire spatial information. In this study, I propose a theoretical formulation of spatiotemporal dynamics and spatiotemporally resolved optical response of the gas-liquid phase separation in electron-hole systems. In addition, the nature of the nonequilibrium open system is an essential point in electron-hole systems. Therefore, I investigate the effect of the finite lifetime of electron-hole pairs on phase-separation dynamics.
