Abstract: The terahertz range of the electromagnetic spectrum reveals important insights when studying material properties. An ultra-broadband terahertz time-domain spectroscopy system based on state-of-the-art, high-stability organic nonlinear optical crystals used as both THz wave generator and detector is presented. In transmission geometry, a broad spectrum exceeding 20 THz and a high dynamic range of more than 80 dB is achieved using a compact 100 MHz femtosecond laser working at telecom wavelength 1560 nm. In the normal-incidence reflection geometry, a similar bandwidth with a dynamic range surpassing 60 dB is reported. The experimental results are supported by a complete theoretical model, which includes the pump pulse duration, THz phonon/vibrational modes of the organic crystals and optical/THz beam path optimizations. The effectiveness of the newly developed system is demonstrated by measuring pharmaceutical samples with distinct THz features in the ultra-broadband THz range and by measuring narrow water vapor lines at a spectral resolution of 2.7 GHz (0.090 cm−1), resulting in an excellent accuracy with a frequency deviation of less than 0.05% from the reference values.
