Abstract

Motivated by the recent experimental measurements of Tera-Hertz radiation [1], this work presents the transient analysis of photogenerated electron-hole pairs in GaAs and InP pin diodes using a full-band particle-based simulator. Excellent agreement is found between the experimental and simulated results of the transient acceleration and velocity overshoot effects in GaAs and InP pin diodes due the femtosecond optical excitation of carriers.
