Effect of non-ideal beam splitters in THz electro-optic detectors

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • We extend a mathematical investigation of the noise in THz electro-optic detectors by considering the non-ideal properties of beam splitters in addition to non-ideal polarisers. It is found that the non-ideal properties of typical beam splitters can result in an unwanted noise floor in certain detectors.
