20 May 1994 Femtosecond optical response of Y-Ba-Cu-O films and their applications in optoelectronics

We report systematic studies of the femtosecond transient reflectivity in Y-Ba-Cu-O (YBCO) thin films at temperatures ranging from 12 to 300 K. By using a 2-eV-pump/white-light-probe technique, we have very accurately measured the ultrafast optical response of YBCO as a function of the optical frequency, film oxygen content, and excitation intensity. Our results shed new light on the thermomodulation model, routinely used to interpret time-domain reflectivity data in high-temperature superconductors. We also review the current state of the art in the ultrafast optoelectronic response of YBCO.
