Transmission of terahertz (THz) electromagnetic waves through a series of nanoresonator arrays punctured in a thin metallic film is investigated. Over 30% of normalized transmitted amplitude is observed with only 0.18% of aperture-coverage, implying an electric field enhancement of 170. Increasing the coverage to 0.6% results in a 90% normalized amplitude, with a broader line width. Inspired by log-periodic antenna, we put ten nanoresonators with four different lengths per unit cell, succeeding in an ultrabroadband THz filter with one decade width between 0.2 and 2.0 THz.

    We propose that the losses in left-handed materials (LHMs) can be significantly affected by changing the coupling relationship between electric and magnetic resonance. A double bowknot shaped structure (DBS) is used to construct the LHMs. And the magnetic resonance of the DBS, which resonated in...

    We demonstrate experimentally a terahertz frequency quantum-cascade laser which can be tuned electronically, in a step-wise manner from typically 3.07 to 3.40 THz, by changing the applied electric field across the device. To achieve this, the gallium growth rate was successively reduced during...

    A multilayer quantum dot sample has been excited with a strong terahertz (THz) electric field and probed with a near-infrared (NIR) laser.
