Abstract
The excitonic insulator (EI) is an intriguing phase of condensed excitons undergoing a Bose-Einstein-Condensation (BEC)-type transition. A prominent candidate has been identified in Ta2NiSe5. Ultrafast spectroscopy allows tracing the coherent response of the EI condensate directly in the time domain. Probing the collective electronic response we can identify fingerprints for the Higgs-amplitude equivalent mode of the condensate. In addition we find a peculiar coupling of the EI phase to a low frequency phonon mode. We will discuss the transient response on multiple energies scales ranging from the exciton dynamics to the coherent THz response of the gap.
