Ultrafast relaxation of excited Dirac fermions in epitaxial graphene using optical differential transmission spectroscopy



Ultrafast relaxation of excited Dirac fermions in epitaxial graphene using optical differential transmission spectroscopy



Physical Review Letters 101(15): 157402



We investigate the ultrafast relaxation dynamics of hot Dirac fermionic quasiparticles in multilayer epitaxial graphene using ultrafast optical differential transmission spectroscopy. We observe differential transmission spectra which are well described by interband transitions with no electron-hole interaction. Following the initial thermalization and emission of high-energy phonons, the electron cooling is determined by electron-acoustic phonon scattering, found to occur on the time scale of 1 ps for highly doped layers, and 4-11 ps in undoped layers. The spectra also provide strong evidence for the multilayer structure and doping profile of thermally grown epitaxial graphene on SiC.
