Abstract: We present an experimental far-infrared pump-probe study on multilayer epitaxial graphene that is complemented by a straightforward theoretical model. To gain deeper insights into the pump-induced change in the complex conductivity in the far-infrared, pump-probe measurements recording both transmission and reflection were performed. These measurements reveal a pump-induced increase of the transmission at low pump fluence, and a decreased transmission at high pump fluence due to a strong pump-induced reflection. Modelling the temperature dependent conductivity for interband and intraband processes in combination with an energy balance equation reproduces the observed results.
