THz-time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) is a well-established tool for characterizing material properties and investigating dynamics of complex molecular systems. As the broadband THz generation typically relies on sub-100-fs laser pulses, most systems are currently driven by Ti:sapphire lasers. In the last years there has been a strong effort to replace Ti:sapphire systems with power-scalable Yb-based directly diode-pumped solid-state lasers (DPSSLs) [1]. Ultrafast DPSSLs generate higher average power with lower complexity and better efficiency. However, their potential for high-power broadband THz operation has not yet been fully exploited [2].
