Abstract

We propose a DAST/SiO2 multilayer structure for efficient generation of near-single-cycle THz transients with average frequency around 6 THz via collinear optical rectification of 800 nm femtosecond laser pulses. The use of such a composite material allows compensation for the phase mismatch that accompanies THz generation in bulk DAST crystals. The presented calculations indicate a strong increase in the THz generation efficiency in the DAST/SiO2 structure in comparison to the case of bulk DAST crystal.
