Abstract-Oscillation effect in frequency domain current from a photoconductive antenna via double-probe-pulse terahertz detection technique

Via constructing a special terahertz time domain spectroscopy (THz-TDS) system in which two femtosecond (fs) laser pulses were used as probe pulses to excite a photoconductive (PC) THz detector, the time behavior of the current from the detector was measured. The corresponding theoretical analysis was performed by a well-known equivalent-circuit model. When the time domain current was transformed to frequency domain, an oscillation effect was observed. The oscillation frequency was decided by the time delay between the two probe pulses. The number of the extrema in the frequency domain current curve was proportion to the pulse interval in 0.1–2 THz. A method to measure the interval of fs laser pulses was proposed. It is important for applications of fs laser pulses or train.
