Abstract

The results of high-field terahertz transmission experiments on n-doped silicon (carrier concentration of 8.7×1016  cm3) are presented. We use terahertz pulses with electric field strengths up to 3.1  MVcm1 and a pulse duration of 700 fs. A huge transmittance enhancement of 90 times is observed with increasing of the terahertz electric field strengths within the range of 1.53.1  MVcm1.
