Highly precise and accurate terahertz polarization measurements based on electro-optic sampling with polarization modulation of probe pulses.

Abstract

We have developed an electro-optic (EO) sampling method with polarization modulation of probe pulses; this method allows us to measure the direction of a terahertz (THz) electric-field vector with a precision of 0.1 mrad in a data acquisition time of 660 ms using a 14.0-kHz repetition rate pulsed light source. Through combination with a THz time-domain… (More)
