Abstract

We consider few cycle, ultrashort electromagnetic pulses impinging the surface of a dielectric material and creating charge carriers. The dynamics of these carriers are assumed to be determined by the interaction with the laser field and the material as well. We investigate theoretical models describing the emerging time dependent macroscopic currents. An appropriate version of the Boltzmann transport equation is found to be efficient in exploring the role of scattering mechanisms that modify the dynamics even on the femtosecond time scale.
