Abstract

We discuss exact solutions of Maxwell’s equations that describe the evolution of single-cycle electromagnetic pulses. The solutions are applied to recent observations of the diffraction transformation of terahertz pulses. In particular, we elucidate the role of the Gouy shift in the temporal reshaping and polarity reversals of single-cycle terahertz pulses.
