The semiconductor nanosheets in the water-cooled copper mount turn an infrared laser pulse into an effectively unipolar terahertz pulse. The team says that their terahertz emitter could be made to fit inside a matchbox. Credit: Christian Meineke, Huber Lab, University of Regensburg. Courtesy: University of Michigan.
