Novel concept uses short-pulse lasers to expand the capabilities of terahertz sources

The terahertz range is one of the last sections of the electromagnetic spectrum – which extends from radio waves through optical applications right up to X-ray radiation – that is still rarely used in everyday life. The radiation is difficult to generate and until now this was only possible to a limited extent. Yet it has the potential for numerous applications.
