Abstract

We investigated Terahertz generation in organic crystals DSTMS, DAST and OH1 directly pumped by a Cr:forsterite laser at central wavelength of 1.25 μm. This pump laser technology provides a laser-to-THz energy conversion efficiency higher than 3 percent. Phase-matching is demonstrated over a broad 0.1-8 THz frequency range. In our simple setup we achieved hundred μJ pulses in tight focus resulting in electric and magnetic field larger than 10 MV/cm and 3 Tesla.

Electric field ξp of a pulse with energy E and duration Δt focused in a waist with radius r, is calculated from the formula: ξp=ξ0⋅E(2π⋅r2⋅Δt)where ζ0 is the impedance of the free space ζ0 = 1/c*ε0, being c the speed of light and ε0 the vacuum permittivity.
