The lifetime of localized vibrational modes (LVM) in a crystalline semiconductor was studied. Using transient bleaching spectroscopy, the lifetime of the stretch mode of bond-center H in Si was measured to be T1 = 7.8 ± 0.2 ps. Lifetimes of the Si-H stretch modes were strongly dependent on the structure of the defects.
