Abstract
We apply time-resolved photocurrent and differential electroreflectance spectroscopy to study the evolution of the internal field in a GaAs/ AlGaAs superlattice after pulsed optical excitation at low temperature. The electric field dynamics is investigated by tracing the spectral position of the Wannier-Stark transitions as a function of delay time. We determine the electron sweep-out time, extract detailed information about the picosecond-time-scale drift of the charge carriers by comparing the measured data with the results of semi-classical self-consistent model calculations, and evaluate the two experimental techniques with respect to their ability to provide information about the carrier and field dynamics.
