Abstract
We report new experimental results on the internal thermalization of the electron-hole plasma (EHP) in bulk GaAs. Time-resolved differential transmission spectra have been systematically studied for different pump photon energies (1.45 eV < $HBAR(omega) < 1.51 eV) and different excitation intensities. The experimental data demonstrate that the plasma thermalization is achieved within a stable interval of 150 - 200 fs for plasma densities ranging from 2 X 1017 to 2 X 1018/cm3. Experimental results are in good agreement with the thermalization times deduced from plasma dynamics calculations using dynamic screening of the interactions in the framework of Boltzmann's equations.
