Abstract

Femtosecond optical response in GaAs thin films has been studied. We prepared GaAs thin films on MgO substrates and on YBa2Cu3O7-δ (YBCO) thin films using pulsed laser deposition (PLD) at temperatures below 250 °C. A photocarrier lifetime of less than 1 ps is measured for the prepared GaAs thin films using femtosecond time-domain reflectivity change measurements. Pulsed electromagnetic wave [terahertz (THz) radiation] containing a frequency component of up to 1 THz is emitted from fabricated photoconductive switches using the prepared thin films. We also evaluated the THz radiation properties emitted from the photoswitches on the YBCO thin films.
