Van Roosbroeck’s equations constitute a versatile tool to determine the dynamics of electrons under time- and space-dependent perturbations. Extensively utilized in ordinary semiconductors, their potential to model devices made from topological materials remains untapped. Here, we adapt van Roosbroeck’s equations to theoretically study the response of a Weyl semimetal to an ultrafast and spatially localized light pulse in the presence of a magnetic field. We predict a transient oscillatory…
