Abstract

We report the generation of CW THz radiation, generated via stimulated polariton scattering in MgO:LiNbO3. The system is capable of producing frequency tunable radiation across the range 1.5–2.3 THz and requires only 2.3 W incident diode pump power to reach threshold. Maximum THz output power of 2.3 μW has been detected for just 5.9 W incident diode pump power, at a frequency of 1.8 THz.

System layout. Note that the distance between the interaction region of the fundamental, Stokes, and polariton (THz) fields, and the edge of the MgO:LiNbO3 crystal is exaggerated for clarity, as is the angle between the fundamental (represented by the solid arrow) and Stokes (represented by the dashed arrow) fields. The wavevectors representing the interaction of the fundamental (kf), Stokes (kS), and THz (kTHz) fields involved in the SPS process is shown inset.

Power scaling properties of the depleted fundamental, Stokes and THz fields, with the Stokes resonator angled to generate 1.83 THz emission. Shown inset are mode profiles of the fundamental (left) and Stokes (right) fields at incident pump powers of 0.9 W, 3 W and 5 W; note that the Stokes field is not present for an incident pump power of 0.9 W (below SPS threshold).
