Abstract

We have calculated the transient dynamic response in GaAs by a Monte Carlo approach. We find that the results are extremely sensitive to the value of Γ, the self-scattering parameter, which differs from results previously reported in the literature. However, when Г is selected so that 〈Δ t 〉= 1/Г ⪡ 〈τ〉, comparable results are obtained to those calculated without utilizing a self-scattering assumption.
