The coupling of electronic, phononic and spin degrees of freedom is at the heart of most phenomena in condensed matter and governs the flow and relaxation of charge carriers in out-of-equilibrium conditions. Microscopic coupling and correlation effects can be accessed quantitatively by time-, energy- and momentum-resolved information on ultrafast electron dynamics as obtained by time- and angle-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy (trARPES). I will discuss the generation of spin-, valley- and layer-polarized excited states in the semiconductor WSe2 , their ultrafast evolution from 2D to 3D states, and the signatures of transient excited-state many-body interactions. In addition, the visualization of the spatio-temporal evolution of photocurrents in a nanowire by means of femtosecond point-projection microscopy will be discussed [2,3].
