R., and Wang, Y., “Comparison between grating imaging and transient grating techniques on measuring carrier diffusion in semiconductor,” Nanoscale and Microscale Thermophysical Engineering, In Press, 2018. Publisher's VersionAbstract
Optical grating technique, where optical gratings are generated via light inference, has been widely used to measure charge carrier and phonon transport in semiconductors. In this paper, compared are three types of transient optical grating techniques: transient grating diffraction, transient grating heterodyne, and grating imaging, by utilizing them to measure carrier diffusion coefficient in a GaAs/AlAs superlattice. Theoretical models are constructed for each technique to extract the carrier diffusion coefficient, and the results from all three techniques are consistent. Our main findings are: (1) the transient transmission change obtained from transient grating heterodyne and grating imaging techniques are identical, even these two techniques originate from different detection principles; and (2) By adopting detection of transmission change (heterodyne amplification) instead of pure diffraction, the grating imaging technique (transient grating heterodyne) has overwhelming advantage in signal intensity than the transient grating diffraction, with a signal intensity ratio of 315:1 (157:1).

Defect-carrier interaction in transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) plays important roles in carrier relaxation dynamics and carrier transport, which determines the per- formance of electronic devices. With femtosecond laser time-resolved spectroscopy, we investigated the effect of grain boundary/edge defects on the ultrafast dynamics of photoexcited carrier in molecular beam epitaxy (MBE)-grown MoTe2 and MoSe2. We found that, comparing with exfoliated samples, the carrier recombination rate in MBE- grown samples accelerates by about 50 times. We attribute this striking difference to the existence of abundant grain boundary/edge defects in MBE-grown samples, which can serve as effective recombination centers for the photoexcited carriers. We also observed coherent acoustic phonons in both exfoliated and MBE-grown MoTe2, indi- cating strong electron-phonon coupling in this materials. Our measured sound velocity agrees well with the previously reported result of theoretical calculation. Our findings provide a useful reference for the fundamental parameters: carrier lifetime and sound velocity and reveal the undiscovered carrier recombination effect of grain boundary/edge defects, both of which will facilitate the defect engineering in TMD materials for high speed opto-electronics.

The exhaust plume produced by a planar, multistream supersonic nozzle is studied with and without the effect of an aft deck and sidewalls. Measurements encompass static wall pressure of the internal flow, shadowgraphy images of the exhaust plume, and far-field acoustics for a range of pressure ratios. An experimentally validated Reynolds averaged Navier–Stokes model of the internal flow is then used to reveal how the aft deck and sidewalls allow the expanding gas to persist longer, thereby extending the location of the separation shock. Where the far-field sound is concerned, the aft deck and sidewall attachments cause a noticeable reduction in overall sound pressure levels by as much as 5 dB at shallow angles and sideline observer positions. Many of the tones associated with screech and broadband shock associated noise are also absent with the addition of the aft deck and sidewalls.

The intensity‐scan (I‐scan) technique to study the polarization‐dependent, nonlinear processes in exfoliated bulk ReS2 is utilized. The polarization‐dependent reflection and transmission of ReS2, from which the absorption coefficients are extracted using the transfer matrix method, are measured. Absorption coefficients under high laser peak power show a transition from saturable absorption (SA) to reverse saturable absorption when rotating the laser polarization with respect to the b‐axis. It is found that SA and excited‐state absorption (ESA) contribute to the nonlinear optical processes. Both the SA and ESA show strong dependence on the polarization angle, which is attributed to the anisotropic optical transition probability and electronic band structure in ReS2. The anisotropic nonlinear optical properties of ReS2 may find applications as saturable absorbers in lasers and optical modulators.
