Paper Abstract

THz wave air photonics involves the interaction of intense femtosecond laser pulses with air or selected gases. The very air that we breath is capable of generating and detecting THz waves with field strength greater than 1 MV/cm and useful spectral coverage from 0.1 THz to 60 THz. Broadband THz wave remote sensing is feasible.
