We report the first observation of sub-terahertz bulk-magnetization precession, using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy. The magnetization precession in gallium-substituted epsilon-iron oxide nano-ferromagnets under zero magnetic field is induced by the impulsive magnetic field of the THz wave through the gyromagnetic effect. Just at the resonance(More)
Investigation of the non-equilibrium dynamics after an impulsive impact provides insights into couplings among various excitations. A two-temperature model (TTM) is often a starting point to understand the coupled dynamics of electrons and lattice vibrations: the optical pulse primarily raises the electronic temperature T(el) while leaving the lattice(More)
Millimeter waves (30-300 GHz) are starting to be used in next generation high-speed wireless communications. To avoid electromagnetic interference in this wireless communication, finding a suitable electromagnetic wave absorber in the millimeter wave range is an urgent matter. In this work, we prepared a high-performance millimeter wave absorber composed of(More)
Coherent control of the precession motion of magnetizations in a single crystal YFeO3 with double half-cycle pulse terahertz waves was demonstrated. Quasiferromagnetic (0.299 THz) and quasiantiferromagnetic (0.527 THz) precession modes were selectively excited by choosing an appropriate interval of two pulses and were observed as free induction decay (FID)(More)
Terahertz time domain spectroscopy was performed on orthoferrite ErFeO3. Through the emission from the two magnetic resonance modes, we succeeded in observing the spin reorientation transition. Depending on the orientation of the single crystal, the reorientation can be detected as either mode switching between the two modes or polarization change of the(More)
Magnetic ferrites such as Fe(3)O(4) and Fe(2)O(3) are extensively used in a range of applications because they are inexpensive and chemically stable. Here we show that rhodium-substituted ε-Fe(2)O(3), ε-Rh(x)Fe(2-x)O(3) nanomagnets prepared by a nanoscale chemical synthesis using mesoporous silica as a template, exhibit a huge coercive field (H(c)) of 27(More)
The dynamics of fluorescence from horse heart cytochrome c is investigated in reduced (ferrous) and oxidized (ferric) forms by a streak camera and an up-conversion technique under B-band excitation at 415 nm. In the reduced form, we found the Q-band emission at 550 and 600 nm originated from the S(1) state in a short time range. A very broad continuum(More)
Ultra-short pulses in blue region generated from compact and low-cost semiconductor lasers have attracted much attention for a wide variety of applications. Nitride-based vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs), having intrinsic high material gain and short cavities, favor the generation of ultra-short blue pulses via a simple gain-switching(More)
Short pulses generated from low-cost semiconductor lasers by a simple gain-switching technique have attracted enormous attention because of their potential usage in wide applications. Therein, reducing the durations of gain-switched pulses is a key technical point for promoting their applications. Therefore, understanding the dynamic characteristics of(More)
The structural, electronic, and optical properties of pyrochlore-type Pb(2)Ir(2)O(6)O(0.55)('), which is a metal without spatial inversion symmetry at room temperature, were investigated. Structural analysis revealed that the structural distortion relevant to the breakdown of the inversion symmetry is dominated by the Pb-O' network but is very small in the(More)
