A Waveguide Mode of Generating Terahertz Radiation

  • A. N. Bugay

An optical technique for generating broadband terahertz radiation in a gradient waveguide is investigated. The phenomena of capturing optical and terahertz pulses in the waveguide are considered. It is shown that capture occurs under conditions of filamentation with both normal and anomalous group dispersions of the optical signal.
