Electron transport and phonon dynamics in a GaAs-based (Formula presented)-(Formula presented)-(Formula presented) nanostructure under the application of an electric field have been studied by time-resolved Raman spectroscopy at (Formula presented) K. The time evolution of electron density, electron distribution, electron drift velocity, and LO-phonon population has been directly measured with subpicosecond time resolution. Our experimental results show that, for a photoexcited electron-hole pair density of (Formula presented) cm(Formula presented), the effects of the drifting of electrons and electron intervalley scattering processes govern electron transport properties as well as the LO-phonon dynamics. All of the experimental results are compared with ensemble Monte Carlo simulations and satisfactory agreement is obtained.
