Intense Terahertz Excitation of Semiconductors

Sergey Ganichev and Willi Prettl

Abstract

This book presents high-power terahertz applications to semiconductors and semiconductor structures. It aims to bridge the gap between optics and microwave physics. It focuses on a core topic of semiconductor physics, providing a full description of the state of art of the field. The book introduces new physical phenomena which occur in the terahertz frequency range at the transition from semi-classical physics with a classical field amplitude to the fully quantized limit with photons. It covers tunneling in high-frequency fields, nonlinear absorption of radiation and radiation heating, nonlin ... More

Keywords: tunneling, nonlinear, phenomena, photocurrents, bloch oscillation, sources, detectors, spintronics
