Abstract

The authors report on the excitation wavelength dependence of terahertz emission from n-InN and bulk p-InAs pumped with femtosecond pulses tunable from 800 to 1500 nm. The terahertz amplitude, normalized to pump and probe power, from both narrow band gap semiconductors remains relatively constant over the excitation wavelength range. In addition, terahertz radiation from In- and N-face InN samples with bulk carrier concentrations ranging from 10(17) to 10(19) cm(-3) is also investigated, showing a strong dependence of terahertz emission on bulk carrier concentration. The experimental results agree well with calculations based on drift-diffusion equations incorporating momentum conservation and relaxation. (c) 2006 American Institute of Physics.
