Abstract

We present transmission and phase measurements on a birefringent YAlO3 crystal that is illuminated with linearly polarized terahertz radiation in a broad frequency range (10cm1  to  16cm1). The spectra exhibit pronounced and complex Fabry–Perot resonances that depend on the polarization orientation of the incoming light. We present a theoretical description to analyze these data and to obtain the optical constants of the crystal in the terahertz range.
