Abstract

We present a multimodal diode-laser-based terahertz (THz) spectroscopy system. In contrast to other laser-based THz setups that provide either cw or broadband THz generation, our configuration combines the advantages of both approaches. Our low complexity setup enables fast switching from cw difference frequency generation to broadband THz emission, enabling sophisticated data analysis like much more complex time domain spectroscopy systems.
