Abstract

A polarization-twisting dual-pulse (PTDP) system is demonstrated using a modified Michelson interferometer (MI), in which a pellicle beam splitter is inserted into each arm. By tuning the positions of the end mirrors and pellicle beam splitters in the MI, the polarization-twisting frequency, the helicity, and the interval between two pulses can be individually manipulated. This PTDP generation system has a high degree of freedom in terms of tuning and has applications in the study of helicity dynamics in quantum matter, particularly in the terahertz (THz) regime.
