Title: Terahertz Radiation from a Nonlinear Slab Traversed by an Optical Pulse

Abstract

We report on the theoretical calculations considering collinear electromagnetic radiation at the propagation of an optical pulse through a slab of nonlinear material. Calculated waveforms of the radiated field fit well to the experimental dependencies showing the remarkable similarities between the radiation at nonlinear wave interaction and the radiation phenomena of moving external charges, similarly to discussed in the Tamm Problem and transition radiation of moving external charges.
