C. A. D. Roeser, A. M.-T. Kim, and E. Mazur. 2003. “Ultrafast Lattice-Bonding Dynamics of Tellurium.” In . Ultrafast Electronics and Optoelectronics. Publisher's Version


A pump-probe technique measuring the dielectric function is presented and applied to the ultrafast dynamics of coherent phonons in Te. Oscillations in the bonding-antibonding splitting are revealed, allowing for THz modulation of a semiconductor-semimetal transition.
