We describe a source of terahertz (THz) radiation that is based on Raman down-shifting of an infrared laser beam using highly coherent molecular vibrations. The source can operate in either the pulsed or the continuous wave (CW) regime and is tunable over much of the THz region of the spectrum (1-10 THz). In the pulsed regime, we predict average output… CONTINUE READING
