Abstract: A single expression relating the carrier drift velocity in semiconductors under an electric field to Raman scattering data is derived resorting to a full nonequilibrium picture for electrons and holes. It allows one to probe with high optical precision both the ultrafast transient as well as the steady state carriers' drift velocity in semiconductor systems. This is achieved by simply modifying the experimental geometry, thus changing the angle between the transferred wave vector Q and the applied electric field E, and measuring the frequency shift promoted by the presence of the field to be observed in the single-particle and plasmon scattering spectra. An application to zinc-blende gallium nitride is presented to highlight the power of the method. (C) 2004 American Institute of Physics.
