.... The energy relaxation of the conduction band electrons in metals is considered to be governed by the electron-phonon scattering, and the scattering time is taken to be averaged over the Fermi surface. Using the new formalism, one can quantify the transfer from nonthermal modes to thermal ones as energy...

...Patrick E. Hopkins This work examines the effects of photonically induced interband excitations from the d-band to states at the Fermi energy on thermophysical properties in noble metals. The change in the electron population in the d-band and the conduction band causes a change in electron heat...
