ABSTRACT
We model the subpicosecond evolution of a nonthermal electron distribution injected into a GaAs/AlGaAs quantum well using an ensemble Monte Carlo simulation which includes electron-electron scattering. The calculated results are in good agreement with the experimental time dependence of the carrier distribution function from recent bleaching experiments with carrier-carrier scattering the dominant mechanism contributing to band filling.
