Direct Phonon Excitation in Semiconductors by Ultrashort Intense THz Radiation Conference Paper uri icon


  • Ultrashort intense THz radiation generated through laser filamentation in air is employed to directly excite the lattice of AlGaAs semi-insulating crystals. Incoherent as well as coherent phonons are shown to be excited in this way. 2009 Optical society of America.
