Title: The influence of charge and magnetic order on polaron and acoustic phonon dynamics in LuFe 2O 4

Abstract

Femtosecond optical pump-probe spectroscopy is used to reveal the influence of charge and magnetic order on polarondynamics and coherent acoustic phonon oscillations in single crystals of charge-ordered, ferrimagnetic LuFe 2O 4. We experimentally observed the influence of magnetic order on polarondynamics. We also observed a correlation between charge order and the amplitude of the acoustic phonon oscillations, due to photoinduced changes in the lattice constant that originate from the photoexcited electrons. As a result, this provides insight into the general behavior of coherent acoustic phonon oscillations in charge-ordered materials.
