Abstract-Terahertz Time-Domain Polarimetry for Principal Optical Axes of Anisotropic Crystals


Alexander Mamrashev, Fedor Minakov, Nazar Nikolaev, Valery Antsygin, 


We propose a method for measuring the terahertz properties for two principal optical axes of anisotropic crystals without optical activity using terahertz time-domain spectroscopy (THzTDS). The method put forward in this paper utilizes the inherent polarization sensitivity of the THz-TDS electro-optic detection system. We demonstrate the practical application of the method by measuring the temperature dependence of the refractive index and the absorption coefficient of a lithium triborate crystal for three optical axes.
