Paper Abstract

The saturation and power scaling of terahertz radiation produced by large-aperture photoconducting antennas under high electric fields and high optical fluences are described. From the saturation behavior, a large-aperture transmitter can be designed to produce the maximum pulse energy of terahertz radiation for a given photoconductor, optical pulse energy and electric field.
