Abstract

We present the generation of high-power single-cycle terahertz (THz) pulses in the organic salt crystal 2-[3-(4-hydroxystyryl)-5.5-dimethylcyclohex-2-enylidene]malononitrile or OH1. Broadband THz radiation with a central frequency of 1.5 THz (λc=200μm) and high electric field strength of 440kV/cm is produced by optical rectification driven by the signal of a powerful femtosecond optical parametric amplifier. A 1.5% pump to THz energy conversion efficiency is reported, and pulse energy stability better than 1% RMS is achieved. An approach toward the realization of higher field strength is discussed.

Fig. 1.

THz setup with organic crystal (OH1), half-wave plate (HWP), polarizers (PBS), holey parabolic mirror (PM), quarter-wave plate (QWP), and balanced amplified photodetector (BPD). Polarization states are indicated. The inset (upper right corner) shows the setup for THz spot size measurements with knife edge and Golay cell.

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

Energy conversion for 400 μm thick OH1 with 3  circular aperture. THz output (black, circles) and IR-to-THz conversion efficiency (red) reached up to 9 μJ and 1.75%, respectively.

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

Knife edge measurement (blue dashed) and retrieved transverse beam profile (black) corresponding to a FWHM beam size of 1.2 mm (400 μm thick OH1).

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Electric field transients for (a) 400 and (c) 930 μm thick OH1 crystal reconstructed by EOS with corresponding spectra shown in (b) and (d). The red curves show the absolute absorption α3·LOH1 for corresponding crystal thicknesses.
