Abstract

We present transmission and phase measurements on a birefringent Y Al O 3 crystal that is illuminated with linearly polarized terahertz radiation in a broad frequency range ( 10 cm 1   to   16 cm 1 ) . The spectra exhibit pronounced and complex Fabry–Perot resonances that depend on the polarization orientation of the incoming light. We present a theoretical description to analyze these data and to obtain the optical constants of the crystal in the terahertz range.
