Part of the Springer Series in Optical Sciences book series (SSOS, volume 171)

Abstract

Optical-pump–terahertz-probe spectroscopy is a technique that can measure directly the conductivity of photoexcited carriers on a picosecond timescale. In this chapter, we introduce the technique and data analysis, and discuss suitable models of the interaction between terahertz radiation and quasiparticles in materials. We then review some recent studies of inorganic and organic semiconductors and nanomaterials.

Keywords

Terahertz Radiation Effective Medium Theory Drude Model Photoinduced Change Photoconductivity Spectrum 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
