Time-Resolved Nonlinear Optical Spectroscopy of Semiconductor Interfaces
Time-resolved nonlinear optical spectroscopies are employed to obtain interface-specific information about electronic structure, vibrational excitations and ultrafast dynamics of charge-transfer processes at semiconductor interfaces. Ongoing studies of GaP/Si(001) as a model for an interface between a polar and a nonpolar inorganic semiconductor will be continued and extended to GaAs/Ge(001). Build-up and decay of transient electric fields following optical excitation at buried interfaces is investigated with optical second-harmonic generation (SHG). Coherent phonon and plasmon dynamics of the systems are studied together with the groups of Petek (University of Pittsburgh/USA) and Ishioka (NIMS, Tsukuba/Japan) as associated partners of this CRC. A new SHG microscopy setup allows to time-resolve charge-transfer processes at interfaces between two-dimensional semiconductors, particularly as a function of their stacking angle. Finally, the dynamics of charge injection from organic thin films into silicon will be studied for well-defined interfaces based on functionalized cyclooctynes.
