Retrieving broadband ultrashort THz wave packets through lossy channels Academic Article uri icon


  • Most transmission and detection channels fail to faithfully support broadband wave packets because of physical limitations, like chromatic dispersion and absorption. We explore the case of lossy detection of ultrashort THz pulses using the widespread electro-optic detection scheme. We demonstrate that one can fully recover the original THz pulse shape, duration and amplitude, using a simple experimental procedure and a reconstruction algorithm which encodes the physical properties of the detection system.
