Carrier dynamics in graphene under Landau quantization — •Florian Wendler1, Martin Mittendorff2, Stephan Winnerl2, Manfred Helm2, Andreas Knorr1, and Ermin Malic11Institut für Theoretische Physik, Nichtlineare Optik und Quantenelektronik, Technische Universität Berlin, Germany — 2Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden, Germany

We investigate the ultrafast dynamics of low-energetic Dirac electrons in graphene under Landau quantization [1]. In a joint experiment-theory study, we provide calculations based on the density matrix formalism [2] as well as measurements of the relaxation dynamics via differential transmission spectroscopy.

As a consequence of the linear dispersion at the Dirac points, graphene exhibits a non-equidistant Landau level spectrum which allows to address specific transitions by optical pumping. Exploiting this to selectively excite the energetically lowest Landau levels, we employ pump-probe spectroscopy to explore the carrier dynamics in this regime. A surprising sign reversal in differential transmission spectra is observed both in experiment and theory and provides evidence for strong Auger scattering on a picosecond timescale. Our calculations even predict the occurrence of a substantial carrier multiplication in Landau quantized graphene [3].
