Abstract
We report terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) system based on Er:fiber laser at 1.55 μm wavelength that integrates an ion-irradiated In0.53Ga0.47As photoconductive antenna as an emitter and a DAST electro-optic sensor as a detector. DAST crystal cannot be used in traditional electro-optic sampling set-ups because of its high intrinsic birefringence. We propose here THz detection in DAST crystal by using an optical phase detection technique. The detected bandwidth is 5 THz. The performances of our THz-TDS systems based on electro-optic detection in a DAST crystal using optical phase detection is compared theoretically to the performance of a THz-TDS systems based on electro-optic detection in a GaAs crystal using traditional polarization rotation detection.
