Title: Broadband ultrafast terahertz spectroscopy in the 25 T Split Florida-Helix

Abstract

In this paper, we describe the development of a broadband (0.3–10 THz) optical pump-terahertz probe spectrometer with an unprecedented combination of temporal resolution (≤200 fs) operating in external magnetic fields as high as 25 T using the new Split Florida-Helix magnet system. Finally, using this new instrument, we measure the transient dynamics in a gallium arsenide four-quantum well sample after photoexcitation at 800 nm.
