Optical rectification for terahertz generation

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The applications of terahertz-frequency electromagnetic

    radiation are growing rapidly, driven by developments in

    sources, detectors and optics suited to the THz-frequency

    region. Much of the advance is in the field of THz time-domain

    spectroscopy in which ultrashort pulses of near-infrared

    radiation are used in a pulse-probe arrangement

    to realise both the emission and detection of the THz radiation.

    Methods for ultrafast THz pulse generation include

    photoconductivity, transient currents or optical rectification.

    While optical rectification has been known for

    some time, earlier theoretical and experimental results

    have been limited to simple crystallographic directions.
