Abstract

Using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy, we have measured the index of refraction and the absorption coefficient of the organic ionic salt 4-N, N-dimethylamino-4′-N′-methyl-stilbazolium tosylate (DAST). This promising organic electro-optic material exhibits strong absorption and dispersion for frequencies above 1 THz at both room temperature and 83 K. No reduction in the absorption strength is observed when DAST is cooled, suggesting a single-phonon origin of the resonances. A simple vibration of the anion and cation of the salt is suggested as the origin of the exceptionally strong far-infrared absorption and the high-frequency electro-optic properties of DAST.
