Abstract : Under the support from AFOSR-DRRIP, Ultrafast Optoelectronics Lab. Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has installed a new laser system (Spectra-Physics Ti:sapphire laser and Optical parametric oscillator) for linear and nonlinear terahertz spectroscopy. Based on the new laser system, they developed several novel methods to detect ultra fast electromagnetic pulses, including the first free space electro-optic sensor for terahertz field measurement. These new sensors will impact the ultrafast electronics and photonics community. As a result, an electro-optic real time imaging system for terahertz field application has been demonstrated.
