Abstract

We investigate the spatially and temporally resolved four-wave mixing of terahertz (THz) fields and optical pulses in large-bandgap dielectrics, such as diamond. We show that it is possible to perform beam profiling and space–time resolved mapping of THz fields by encoding the spatial information into an optical signal, which can then be recorded by a standard CCD camera.

Fig. 1.

Sketch of the experimental setup employed for the generation and imaging of THz pulses. In the inset, we show the time resolved electric field profile and the spectrum recorded via ABCD detection (see text).

Fig. 2.
Fig. 2.

(a) THz beam profile recorded via the proposed nonlinear imaging technique. (b) Section of the THz beam along the y coordinate (x=0) (red, dashed curve) overlapped with a Bessel–Gauss beam fit (green, shaded). (c) Measured profile integrated on the x direction (red, dashed) compared to the result of a knife-edge measurement (blue, shaded).

Fig. 3.
Fig. 3.

(a) THz beam profile recorded with a closed iris in the THz beam-path. (b) Same as (a) with a single mode fiber blocking the THz beam in the image plane.

Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

(a) and (b) are 3D mapping of the THz pulse performed via the Kerr nonlinearity in diamond and borosilicate glass microscope coverslip, respectively. The figures show an iso-amplitude surface at 50% of the maximum. The curves on the sides are iso-amplitude levels for the corresponding projections (50%–90%).
