Design of high-energy THz sources based on optical rectification

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Different materials suitable for optical rectification are compared in terms of maximal THz generation efficiency and the spectral content. Semiconductors can be advantageous for generating higher-frequency THz pulses; however, the relative spectral width is typically smaller than that in LiNbO3. Furthermore, it is shown that imaging errors in the tilted-pulse-front pumping scheme can lead to a THz beam with strong divergence and asymmetric intensity profile, thereby limiting applications. Optimized setup parameters were found to reduce such distortions.
