Terahertz profilometer by time-domain polarimetry

Naoya Yasumatsu, Shinichi Watanabe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We experimentally show that continuously changing polarity of an ellipticallypolarizedterahertz electric-field can be used to image a height profile of semiconductors, metals, and their hybrid samples with a depth resolution of ̃1 μm.
