Abstract

We constructed a fiber-based, hybrid terahertz (THz) spectrometer having two working modes, asynchronous- optical-sampling THz time-domain spectroscopy (AOS-THz-TDS) and multiple-frequency-heterodyning THz comb spectroscopy (MFH-THz-CS), by use of dual fiber-laser-based frequency combs. A spectral range of 2 THz and dynamic range of 100 was achieved at the single sweep measurement of 200 ms in the AOS-THz-TDS mode, whereas the detailed structure of the THz frequency comb was clearly observed in the MFH-THz-CS mode. The spectrometer features compactness, robustness, flexibility, and cost effectiveness, in addition to high spectral resolution in rapid data acquisition, and has the potential to become a powerful tool for practical applications.
