Abstract-Intense terahertz field effects on photoexcited carrier dynamics in gated graphene

We study nonlinear effects of intense terahertz (THz) field on photoexcited carrier dynamics in gated monolayer graphene. By employing optical-pump/intense-THz-probe spectroscopy on lightly doped graphene, we observe a crossover from negative to positive photo-induced THz differential transmission as the THz probe field is increased. We attribute this qualitative change in the response to a crossover from a regime where the photo-induced increase in the carrier density dominates the differential response to one where a THz-field-induced increase in the scattering rate dominates.
