FIG. 1.

Experimental setup for terahertz generation based on frequency-mixing two lasers in several GaSe crystals: and —glass and germanium attenuators, BP—Brewster polarizer (transmittance of 95% for parallel-polarized wave and reflectivity of 95% for vertically polarized wave), and —quartz and black polyethylene filters, —irises, and —plano-convex lenses with the same focal length of either 50 or depending on the crystal length, —silicon mirrors, WP—half-wave plate, and and —gold parabolic mirrors. An etalon is constructed from two parallel Ge plates; one of which is spatially translated by a step motor with a resolution of better than .
