Ultrafast carrier dynamics in a graphene system are very important in terms of optoelectronic devices. Recently, a twisted bilayer graphene has been discovered that possesses interesting electronic properties owing to strong modifications in interlayer couplings. Thus, a better understanding of ultrafast carrier dynamics in a twisted bilayer graphene is highly desired. Here, we reveal the unbalanced electron distributions in a quasicrystalline 30° twisted bilayer graphene (QCTBG), using time- A nd angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy on the femtosecond time scale. We distinguish time-dependent electronic behavior between the upper- A nd lower-layer Dirac cones and gain insight into the dynamical properties of replica bands, which show characteristic signatures due to Umklapp scatterings. The experimental results are reproduced by solving a set of rate equations among the graphene layers and substrate. We find that the substrate buffer layer plays a key role in initial carrier injections to the upper and lower layers. Our results demonstrate that QCTBG can be a promising element for future devices.
