The Effect of Intervalence-Band Absorption, Auger Recombination, Surface Recombination, Diffusion and Carrier Cooling on the Picosecond Dynamics of Laser-Induced Plasmas in Germanium

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The picosecond optical response of germanium is investigated by performing excitation-probe experiments on a thin, intrinsic-germanium wafer maintained at 135 K. The results of three distinct experiments are reported: (1) the transmission of a single pulse is measured as a function of irradiance, (2) the probe transmission is measured at a fixed time after excitation as a function of the excitation energy, and (3) the transmission of a probe pulse is monitored as a function of time after excitation. These experiments employ 10-picosecond laser pulses at 1.06 um and Stokes-shifted pulses at 1.55-um.
