Abstract

It is shown that optical rectification in biased quantum wells using specially shaped optical pulses can be used to generate quasi-half-cycle THz electromagnetic pulses. Namely, we investigate THz generation by pulses incorporating a rapid π phase shift. We further explore the potential of this scheme for high-repetition-rate quasi-half-cycle THz pulse generation.
