Carrier lifetimes in Ge-on-Si waveguides are deduced using time-resolved infrared transmission
pump-probe spectroscopy. Dynamics of pump-induced excess carriers generated in waveguides
with varying Ge thickness and width is probed using a CW laser. The lifetimes of these excess carriers
strongly depend on the thickness and width of the waveguide due to defect assisted surface
recombination. Interface recombination velocities of 0.975x10^4 cm/s and 1.45x10^4 cm/s were
extracted for the Ge/Si and the Ge/SiO2 interfaces, respectively.
