  • We investigate the properties of the metallic state obtained by photodoping carriers into a Mott insulator. In a strongly interacting system, these carriers have a long lifetime, so that they can dissipate their kinetic energy to a phonon bath. In the relaxed state, the scattering rate saturates at a nonzero temperature-independent value, and the momentum-resolved spectral function features broad bands which differ from the well-defined quasiparticle bands of a chemically doped system. Our… CONTINUE READING
