Abstract

We manipulate terahertz (THz) waveforms by optical rectification in nonlinear optical crystals using a pair of temporally separated femtosecond pulses. Two single-cycle THz pulses coherently control rotational transitions in gas-phase HCl molecules. Continuously tunable narrowband THz pulses are generated in a fanned-out, periodically poled lithium niobate crystal. The shape of the multicycle THz pulses is controlled by adjusting the relative time delay and intensity between the two optical pulses.

Coherent control of the FID signal for the J = 1 2 rotational transition of HCl molecules ( ν = 1.25 THz ) . (a) Transmitted THz waveforms through a HCl gas cell when Δ ϕ = 0 and π. (b) FID spectra of J = 1 2 rotational transition ( ν = 1.25 THz ) for Δ ϕ = 0 , π 4 , π 2 , 3 π 4 , and π. The spectra are obtained by fast fourier transform of the time-resolved THz waveforms between 17 and 33 ps.

Fig. 3

Schematics for manipulation of THz pulses in a fanned-out PPLN crystal by use of a pair of optical pulses. The adjusting parameters are the relative time delay ( τ ) , intensity ( I 2 ) , and polarization of the optical pulses. The central frequency ( f THz ) of the THz pulses is controlled by lateral translation of the fanned-out crystal.

Shown is a pair of temporally separated femtosecond pulses that controls the THz pulse shape in the fanned-out PPLN crystals. Experiment [(a) waveforms and (c) corresponding spectra] and simulation [(b) waveforms and (d) corresponding spectra] results depend on the relative phase ( 2 π ν τ = 2 π n + Δ ϕ , n = 8 ) .
