Generation of 1.5 microJ single-cycle terahertz pulses by optical rectification from a large aperture ZnTe crystal.

Abstract

We demonstrate the generation muJ-level, single-cycle terahertz pulses by optical rectification from a large-aperture ZnTe single crystal wafer. Energies up to 1.5 muJ per pulse and a spectral range extending to 3 THz were obtained using a 100 Hz Ti:sapphire laser source and a 75-mmdiameter, 0.5-mm-thick, (110) ZnTe crystal, corresponding to an average power of 150 muW and an energy conversion efficiency of 3.1 x 10(-5). We also demonstrate real-time imaging of the focused terahertz beam using a pyroelectric infrared camera.
