Abstract

Incorporating an electro-optic modulator with a conventional optical streak camera extends the spectral range of the streak camera from the optical region (UV, visible, and near-IR) to the terahertz region (far-IR and millimeter-wave) with a minimum modification. We demonstrate the temporal measurement of freely propagating terahertz pulses with single-shot capability.
