Detectivity enhancement in THz electrooptical sampling


Ahmed, Saima; Savolainen, Janne; Hamm, Peter (2014). Detectivity enhancement in THz electrooptical sampling. Review of Scientific Instruments, 85(1):013114.

Abstract

We demonstrate and discuss a simple scheme that significantly enhances the detectivity of THz electro-optical sampling by introducing a sequence of Brewster windows that increases the ellipticity of the probe beam. By varying the window material or the number of Brewster windows, the enhancement factor can be adjusted; we demonstrate an enhancement factor of ≈20 with four ZnSe Brewster windows. The scheme is particularly useful when very small THz fields are to be measured in connection with low-repetition rate amplified Ti:S laser systems.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
