Generation of strong short coherent terahertz pulses in gases and solids using quantum coherence Conference Paper uri icon


  • We show that using an excitation of maximal quantum coherence in coherently driven atomic, molecular, or solid state media potentially yield strong controllable short pulses of THz radiation. The pulses have the energies range from several nJ to μJ and time durations from several fs to ns at room temperature. © 2006 Optical Society of America.
