Motivated by the recent experimental measurements of Tera-Hertz radiation , this work presents the transient analysis of photogenerated electron-hole pairs in GaAs and InP pin diodes usinga full-band particlebased simulator. Excellent agreement is found between the experimental and simulated results of the transient acceleration and velocity overshoot effects in GaAs and InP pin diodes due the femto-second optical excitation of carriers.
