Abstract

A kind of photoluminescence quenching, in which the time-resolved photoluminescence is modulated by a THz pulse, has been theoretically investigated by performing the ensemble Monte Carlo method in bulk gallium arsenide (GaAs) at room temperature. The quenching ratio could reach up to 50% under a strong THz field (100kV/cm). The range in which luminescence quenching is linearly proportional to the THz field could be over 60kV/cm. On the basis of these results, a principle for THz modulation and coherent detection is proposed.
