We report on THz generation and picosecond photocurrents in freely suspended bilayers of graphene [1]. The graphene layers are connected to coplanar strip lines which serve as source and drain contacts. A pump laser pulse excites charge carrier in the graphene. The resulting charge carrier dynamics couple to the strip line circuit and propagate along the strip line. With a probe laser pulse focused onto an on-chip photo switch, the propagating signal is read out via a third contact with a picosecond time resolution. By varying the delay of the probe pulse relative to the pump pulse, the optoelectronic signal can be measured time-resolved. We discuss the generation of THz radiation, ultrafast displacement currents, and thermoelectric currents within the optically excited graphene. Financial support by the ERC-grant NanoREAL is acknowledged.
