Abstract

We have generated sub-single-cycle pulses of electromagnetic radiation with pulse energies as high as 0.8 μJ and pulse lengths < 500 fs. The 10-dB width of the spectrum is 1.5 THz. The transmitter is a GaAs wafer illuminated at normal incidence by 120-fs, 770-nm pulses from a Ti:sapphire chirped-pulse amplifier system while a pulsed electric field is applied across the surface. The pulse energy of the far-infrared radiation is found to be a quadratic function of bias field and a nonmonotonic function of laser intensity.
