We have studied terahertz (THz) emission from arsenic-ion implanted GaAs both experimentally and using a three-dimensional carrier dynamics simulation. A uniform density of vacancies was formed over the optical absorption depth of bulk GaAs samples by performing multienergy implantations of arsenic ions (1 and 2.4 MeV) and subsequent thermal annealing.

Many secondary plant compounds are synthesized in response to stressed growing conditions. We tested the feasibility of exploiting this feature in a novel strategy for the commercial production of the plant alkaloid galanthamine. Experimental lines of Narcissus pseudonarcissus were established under marginal upland permanent pasture at four different sites.(More)
We have developed a detector which records the full polarisation state of a terahertz (THz) pulse propagating in free space. The three-electrode photoconductive receiver simultaneously records the electric field of an electromagnetic pulse in two orthogonal directions as a function of time. A prototype device fabricated on Fe + ion implanted InP exhibited a(More)
