Abstract

A high-efficiency etalon operated in the terahertz (THz) frequency region has been proposed to generate a THz pulse train. To achieve high-conversion efficiency to the pulse train, an optical shutter is employed in this etalon. The etalon is composed of a silicon (Si) plate as an input coupler and an indium-tin-oxide (ITO)-coated glass plate as an output coupler. After THz light is introduced into the etalon through the Si plate, the optical shutter pulse irradiates the Si surface to generate a photoconductive layer that acts as a highly reflective mirror for THz light. A THz pulse train and its comb-shaped spectrum have been realized by the use of the proposed etalon with the optical shutter. A finesse F of 9.04 was achieved at the free spectral range of 75 GHz in this etalon.

(a) Measured waveforms of the THz pulse trains transmitted through the etalon with ITO with a sheet resistance of 300 Ω. The spacings between the Si and ITO-coated glass plates in the etalon were 1 mm and 2 mm. The thick red and thin black lines show the waveforms measured with and without the optical shutter, respectively. (b) Frequency spectra obtained from the Fourier transforms of the corresponding waveforms shown in (a). The waveforms and the spectra measured with the etalon with 15 Ω ITO are shown in (c) and (d), respectively.

Relative intensities of the pulses in the pulse train generated by the etalon with 300 Ω (upper figure) and 15 Ω (lower). The intensity is normalized to that of the first pulse. The filled and open dots are the observed data with and without the optical shutter. The solid lines are the fitted results explained in the text.
