Abstract

We report the use of the organic crystal DAST as a freely propagating electromagnetic-wave sensor at terahertz (THz) frequency. We also report the result of using a DAST crystal as a mid-IR THz emitter. Compared with the optical rectification from our best ZnTe emitter, that obtained by use of DAST demonstrates a sixfold enhancement of radiation at 7–20 THz.
