Abstract
Femtosecond pump-terahertz probe studies of carrier dynamics in semi-insulating GaAs have been investigated in detail under various pump powers. The pump-induced attenuation of terahertz transmission and the carrier relaxation time are found to be correlated with photo-injected carrier density. These effects can be fully explained in terms of the enhanced photoconductivity and surface states filling in GaAs. Moreover, abnormal reversal and increase of terahertz reflected waves transmitted from GaAs are observed, and these phenomena arise primarily from the pump injected carriers. One-dimensional pump scans of terahertz transmission of both the main peaks and the reflection peaks are discussed to reveal the more complete studies of the dynamics of carrier transfer in GaAs.
