Abstract

We present the results of a direct measurement of the temporal response of a terahertz (THz) photoconductive receiver obtained by dithered-edge sampling. The receiver response has structure that accounts for the negative-going leading edge of the pulse shape that is often seen in measurements made with these receivers in a conventional sampling arrangement. We show that the THz pulse shape measured by conventional photoconductive sampling is indeed a cross correlation of the pulse with the measured receiver’s response.
