Abstract

We generated the second harmonics of pulses in the far-infrared region 3055 µm, using the organic salt dimethylamino-4-N-methylstilbazolium tosylate (DAST). We demonstrate that DAST can be used to characterize ultrashort pulses in a spectral region where no other materials are available. To illustrate the need for such characterizations, we show the effects of propagation through air on the shape of ultrashort far-infrared pulses.
