Simulation of THz generation and propagation from photo-Dember emitters

We demonstrate a simulation of lateral photo-Dember terahertz (THz) emitters in two dimensions using the drift diffusion equation coupled to a finite-difference time-domain model with a far-field algorithm that can take into account the angular spectrum of emission and propagation. We show that the dynamics of the system are more dependent on the currents traveling perpendicular to the semiconductor surface, as opposed to just the lateral currents as previously thought. The 2D simulation is needed in order to correctly represent experiments that measure emission out of lateral photo-Dember emitters.

Abstract

We demonstrate a simulation of lateral photo-Dember terahertz (THz) emitters in two dimensions using the drift diffusion equation coupled to a finite-difference time-domain model with a far-field algorithm that can take into account the angular spectrum of emission and propagation. We show that the dynamics of the system are more dependent on the currents traveling perpendicular to the semiconductor surface, as opposed to just the lateral currents as previously thought. The 2D simulation is needed in order to correctly represent experiments that measure emission out of lateral photo-Dember emitters.
