THz Emitter

Terahertz (THz) technology has a large potential for non-destructive testing, communication, and security applications. Using single-cycle THz pulses and recording amplitude and phase of the electric field in time-domain spectroscopy is a particularly powerful technique. Key components are efficient THz emitters and low-noise detectors. We develop such components, in particular we offer large-area photoconductive emitters that allow one to conveniently produce strong THz waves upon pulsed near-infrared laser excitation.
