Abstract
We present a terahertz (THz) radiation pumped by a passively mode-locked Yb-doped fiber laser using two fiberpigtailed log-spiral-based low-temperature-grown (LTG) InGaAs photoconductive antenna (PCA) modules. The modelocked fiber laser produces over 220 mW of the average optical power with positively chirped of 1.49 ps pulses. In order to generate THz radiation using the fiber-pigtailed PCA modules, the mode-locked optical pulses are pre-chirped with 538 fs using two diffraction gratings. We successfully achieved THz radiation over 2.0 THz using the pre-chirped pulses. We successfully observed the various absorption lines of water vapor dips in the free space of 120 mm.
