Abstract:
We modulate the atomic structure of bilayer graphene by driving its lattice at resonance with the in-plane $E_1u$ lattice vibration at $6.3 \mu m$. Using time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (tr-ARPES) with extreme-ultraviolet (XUV) pulses, we measure the response of the Dirac electrons near the $K$ point. We observe that lattice modulation causes anomalous carrier dynamics, with the Dirac electrons reaching lower peak temperatures and relaxing at faster rate compared to when the excitation is applied away from the phonon resonance or in monolayer samples. Frozen phonon calculations predict dramatic band structure changes when the $E_{1u}$ vibration is driven, which we use to explain the anomalous dynamics observed in the experiment.
