Abstract-Nonlinear transmission and reflection of a strong terahertz pulse by a metal film

S. G. Bezhanov and S. A. Uryupin
Nonlinear interaction of the powerful terahertz radiation pulse with metal nanofilm is investigated. Quantitative analysis of the nonlinear interaction is illustrated by an example of an aluminum film of a thickness of several tens of nanometers. Rapid heating of the conduction electrons and the lattice causes significant rise of the effective electron collision frequency. This implies a noticeable change in reflectivity and an increase of transmissivity by an order of magnitude.
