Abstract-Terahertz cascades from a nanoparticle

In this letter we propose a new system capable of THz radiation with quantum efficiency above unity. The system consists of nanoparticles where the material composition varies along the radial direction of each nanoparticle in such a way that a ladder of equidistant energy levels emerges. By then exciting the highest level of this ladder we produce multiple photons of the same frequency in the THz range.
