Intense monocycle terahertz pulses from shifting electrons in quantum structures

Scientists from MBI and PDI demonstrated a novel concept for generating ultrashort THz waveforms by tailoring electronic currents in a compact optically driven quantum device:

A time-dependent electric current emits an electromagnetic wave, a basic physical effect exploited in telecom antennas. Transferring this mechanism to the ultrashort length and time scales of the quantum world allows for...
