PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM: Coherent Control of Intense Terahertz Generation in Laser-Produced Plasmas

Speaker: Ki-Yong Kim, University of Maryland Sandwiched between the optical and microwave regimes, the far infrared or terahertz (THz) frequency range has recently drawn special attention due to its ubiquitous nature and broad applications. The physics of THz generation is also compelling, raising fundamental questions about the interaction of strong electromagnetic fields with atoms and molecules. THz radiation (or T-rays) can easily pass through non-polar materials such as clothing, paper, plastics, wood and ceramics. This property allows many applications in molecular sensing, biomedical imaging and spectroscopy, security scanners, and plasma diagnostics. In particular, high-power THz generation is vital for applications in nonlinear THz optics and spectroscopy and so there is a growing demand for intense, compact THz sources.
