Transport of electrons in GaAs/AlGaAs modulation-doped heterostructures is studied by means of the Time-of-Flight technique. By applying a constant background illumination, we are able to distinguish between lateral transport processes and effects of perpendicular transport across the GaAs/AlGaAs interface. It is shown that the initial part of the photocurrent signal is due to lateral transport only. This part of the signal is further investigated as a function of sample length and applied electric field.
