Intense Terahertz Excitation of Semiconductors

Terahertz Center, University of Regensburg, 93040, Regensburg, Germany

Abstract: The potential of the terahertz spectroscopy at high excitation level is demonstrated on the example of the recently observed new class of spin dependent elects: spin photocurrents. Two electsresponsible for the occurrence of an electric current caused by homogeneous excitation with terahertz radiation and linked to a uniform spin polarization in a QW are reviewed: the circular photogalvanic elect and the spin-galvanic elect. PACS numbers: 73.21.Fg, 72.25.Fe, 78.67.De, 73.63.Hs

Key words: TerahertzTHz spectroscopy

Abstract: The terahertz technique has attracted much attention from a variety of applications in fundamental and applied research field, such as physics, chemistry, life sciences, medical imaging, safety inspection, radio astronomy, modern communication, weapon guidance and so on. The technological progress of terahertz radiation source plays an important role in promoting the development of various terahertz technique and the related cross subjects. The generation of high-power, coherent, widely tunable, narrow-band terahertz wave, based on the process of the difference frequency generation [1] and the tera-parametric oscillation [2-5] in a polar crystal respectively, is expected to provide a promising terahertz radiation source with the obvious and exclusive advantages of compactness, simplicity for tuning, operation at room temperature and so on, which causes great research interest among the researchers all over the world. However, the research of this potential THz-wave generation technique is still in its infancy, and few relevant theoretical or experimental studies were reported in recent years.

Abstract: Several new configurations of self-exciting gyro-multipliers are proposed. These schemes allow concurrent excitation of radiation at fundamental and harmonic frequencies in a single resonator. It is shown that such an approach simplifies the experimental setup and promises high device efficiency. Experimental proposals based on some of the schemes are presented.
