We present near-infrared pump-probe measurements to investigate the polarization dependence of optical carrier excitation in graphene. Excitation with linearly polarized radiation leads to an anisotropic distribution of the nonequilibrium carriers in momentum space. This anisotropy can be revealed by the comparison of pump-probe signals for different polarization configurations. In parallel configuration the probe beam has the same polarization with respect to the pump beam, for the perpendicular configuration the polarization of the probe beam is rotated by 90°. The signal amplitude of the parallel configuration is about twice as large as compared to the perpendicular configuration. The initial relaxation process is faster for the parallel polarized probe beam, which leads to identical signals about 150 fs after excitation. At this time delay an isotropic carrier distribution is reached by electron-phonon scattering. These findings are confirmed by microscopic calculations.
