Abstract (English)

The investigation of photo induced electric currents in the terahertz frequency range is a vastly efficient tool for the study of nonequilibrium processes in low-dimensional structures. In this work, non-linear transport phenomena in graphene as well as in silicon – both being multi-valley semiconductors – driven by the free-carrier absorption of electromagnetic radiation are explored. It is ...

Die Untersuchung photo-induzierter elektrischer Ströme im Terahertz-Frequenzbereich ist ein äußerst effizientes Werkzeug zur Erforschung von Nichtgleichgewichtsprozessen in niederdimensionalen Strukturen. Diese Arbeit befasst sich mit nichtlinearen Transport-Phänomenen in den Multi-Tal-Halbleitern Graphen und Silizium hervorgerufen durch Absorption langwelliger, elektromagnetischer Strahlung. Es ...
