During the reporting period, the first year of a two year program, progress was made on the development of models of femtosecond photoconductive experiments as used as probes of hot carrier transport in semiconductors. In these experiments subpicosecond laser pulses are focused onto a gap in a transmission line with a semiconducting substrate. A voltage wave is then propagated down the line as a result of the photoconductive transient in the gap. During this first year we developed models for the description of the carrier photogeneration process and the ensuing photocurrent transient. Monte Carlo methods were used in both of these models.
