Abstract

Terahertz (THz) radiation characteristics have been investigated for voltage-biased photoswitching devices (PSDs) coupled with dipole antennas made on magnetoresistive Pr 0.7 Ca 0.3 Mn O 3 thin films. Even under a fixed illumination of femtosecond laser pulses with a power of 14 μ J cm 2 , we find the high electric strength in PSDs made on Pr 0.7 Ca 0.3 Mn O 3 thin films in the charge-ordered (CO) state at 10 K . THz radiation linearly enhances with an increase of the biased electric field up to 400 kV cm without any change of the waveform of the radiated THz pulse. On the other hand, the static time-averaged photoconductance is nearly constant below 200 kV cm but deviates from it above 200 kV cm . Such behavior can be ascribed to an increase in the change of the fraction of photogenerated metallic patches within the CO insulating phase. Therefore our findings show that not only Pr 0.7 Ca 0.3 Mn O 3 but also other manganites having a CO state above room temperature may act as efficient THz radiation sources.
