Abstract-Cavity mode identification for coherent terahertz emission from high-Tc superconductors
Stacks of intrinsic Josephson junctions in Bi2Sr2CaCu2O8+δ emit intense and coherent terahertz waves determined by the internal electromagnetic cavity resonance. We identify the excited transverse magnetic mode by observing the broadly tunable emissions from a nearly square stack and simulating the scattering spectrum. We employ a wedge-type interferometer to measure spatially-integrated power independently of the far-field pattern. The simulation results are in good agreement with observed resonance behaviors as a function of frequency.
