Noble metal nanostructures allow to enhance and tune light absorption to efficientlyproduce plasmonic excitations, which couple strongly to two subsystems of excitations in the semiconductor: hot carriers and phonons. These excitations relax following complex pathways, unlocking numerous nanoplasmonic applications ranging from photocatalysis to photovoltaic. In this work, we distinguish charge carrier and phonon dynamics in a plasmonic metal/semiconductor heterostructure, with the combined use of time- and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (trARPES) and femtosecond electron diffraction (FED).
