The hot carrier relaxation dynamics are studied in both intrinsic and n-type ZnO films grown on R-plane sapphire by metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. An ultrafast UV pump/UV probe experiment was used to study the relaxation process. Absorption saturation and band-gap renormalization are observed. A novel femtosecond pump-probe technique is also used in which the electrons present in n-type ZnO are excited by an infrared pump and the electron dynamics are monitored by a tunable near UV probe. Complex transients, showing bleaching and induced absorption, are observed. The results from those two samples are discussed.
