Abstract: The ultrafast relaxation of carriers excited with moderate excess energies above the band edge of bulk GaAs is studied using degenerate pump-probe experiments with sub 100 fs optical pulses tunable in the near IR. Experiments are performed on bulk GaAs and on thin films at room temperature, and a simple model based on quasi-thermalized Boltzmann functions is applied.
