Abstract

Ordinary and extraordinary refractive indices of an ɛ - Ga Se crystal at terahertz (THz) frequencies are experimentally determined in this study. Fitting experimental data by THz time-domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) and a Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR), we proposed revised complex dielectric functions and Sellmeier equations of GaSe for both ordinary and extraordinary waves from 0.2 to 100 THz . Phonon vibrational modes and overtones in the THz frequency range are examined in detail. The high magnitude of the figure of merit ( FOM 10 3 at 1 THz ), the large birefringence ( Δ n 0.76 at 1 THz ). and the low absorption coefficient ( α 0.2 cm 1 at 1 THz ) of GaSe are also identified. Potential applications to practical photonic devices such as phase shifters at THz frequencies are proposed.
