Systems with ultrafast time-varying dielectric properties represent an emerging physical framework. We demonstrate here the observation of subcycle dynamics interacting directly with an electromagnetic source comprised of morphologically constrained photoexcited carriers in a surface nanostructure. A transition to a metallic metasurface state occurs on time scales faster than the terahertz-field period, inducing large nonlinear ultrafast phase shifts in the terahertz emission and exposing an interesting physical setting.
