Paper Abstract

State-of-the-art coherent THz radiation sources are reviewed and inversion-less amplification mechanisms are presented, which are applicable to a wide variety of optically impulsively excited THz emitters. The amplification schemes will be experimentally demonstrated and fundamental limitations and prerequisites discussed, stressing analogies and differences to standard amplification by stimulated emission.
