Fourier Transform Spectroscopy of Solids at Terahertz Frequencies

Physics Centre, University of Essex, Colchester, Essex CO4 3SQ, UK

Abstract: We briefly review the techniques of dispersive Fourier transform spectroscopy (DFTS), polarised oblique incidence reflection spectroscopy and attenuated total reflection (ATR) spectroscopy, and discuss applications of these techniques to a variety of solids, including alkali halide crystals, pseudo-displacive ferroelectrics, and bulk and low-dimensional semiconductors.

Keywords: DFTS, ATR, polarised oblique incidence reflectivity, ionic solids, ferroelectrics, semiconductors

Frequency Response of Voltage-modulated Gyrotron

Institute of Applied Physics, RAS, Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

Abstract: For the gyrotron with the triode-gun and the depressed-collector, it is shown that modulation of voltages can be coordinated so that a relatively large frequency shift will be followed with only a small change of the output power. The modulation method is applicable to systems where the fast discrete electron cyclotron wave beam switching will be used in tokamaks to suppress hydrodynamic plasma instabilities.

Keywords: Gyrotron, Tokamaks, voltage-modulated
