Optically generated and detected electrical pulses on transmission lines in the subpicosecond range have frequencies extending up to 1 THz, thereby covering the far infrared region of the spectrum from 0 to 30 cm-1. We have studied the propagation of these short pulses through a section of the transmission line covered with erbium iron garnet which shows distinct absorption lines in the far infrared at low temperatures (2–30 K). The absorption and dispersion of the garnet modify the shape of the pulse, and the absorption spectrum is obtained by Fourier transforming the propagated pulse shape.

    Vanadium dioxide (VO2) is a correlated electron material which undergoes an insulator-metal transition proximal to room temperature. The large change of optical properties across this phase transition is promising for tunable optical and optoelectronic devices especially at infrared frequencies....

    FTIR investigations on polycrystalline CO2 at various temperatures show Stokes and anti-Stokes sidebands coupled to the vibrational modes v3, v2, and v+/v- (Fermi dyad). The latter is infrared forbidden and may be eliminated from spectra of good quality polycrystalline films. The main peaks in...

    The growth mechanism of single-crystal ZnO nanorods synthesized by the method of polymer complexing with zinc salts is investigated. The annealing temperature is controlled at about the decomposition temperature of dihydrate zinc acetate (Zn(O2CCH3)2·2H2O) of 573 K. By changing the annealing...

    We present here infrared absorption spectra of dithia tetraphenylporphine and its cation in the 450-1600 and 2900-3400 cm-1 regions. Most of the allowed IR bands are observed in pairs due to overall D2h point group symmetry of the molecule. The observed bands have been assigned to the porphyrin...
