Figures

Image of FIG. 1.
FIG. 1.

Refractive index and absorption coefficient of COANP at terahertz frequencies. Dots: measured data. Solid lines: best fit to the measured data using a Lorentz two-oscillator model (Ref. 10) [see Eqs. (1)–(3) and Table I]. In the upper panel, the optical group indices (dotted line), (dashed line), and (dash-dotted line) are plotted for comparison as a function of wavelength (upper x scale) (Ref. 11).

FIG. 2.

The coherence lengths are shown for terahertz generation through optical rectification in COANP exploiting (upper panel) and (lower panel) as a function of terahertz frequency and laser wavelength.

Image of FIG. 3.
FIG. 3.

The coherence length is shown for terahertz generation through optical rectification in COANP exploiting using a laser wavelength of 776 nm (solid line). For comparison, the coherence length of ZnTe at the same laser wavelength is plotted as a dotted line.

Image of FIG. 4.
FIG. 4.

Terahertz pulse emitted from a 1.72 mm thick COANP crystal exploiting and detected in ZnTe using a laser wavelength of 776 nm (solid line). Terahertz pulse emitted from a 2.0 mm thick ZnTe crystal under identical conditions for comparison (dotted line). Top: Signals in time-domain. Bottom: Fourier spectra of the same signals. The curves are normalized to the maximum amplitude of the ZnTe signal in both time- and frequency-domain. Dashed line: Terahertz spectrum of ZnTe calculated from the terahertz spectrum generated in COANP (see text for details).

Tables

Table II.

FoM for the generation of pulses with a central frequency of 1 THz and other relevant parameters of COANP in comparison with commonly used inorganic terahertz emitters.
