Field-driven THz-streaking of Nanotip Photoemission — •Lara Wimmer, Georg Herink, Katharina E. Echternkamp, Daniel R. Solli, Sergey V Yalunin, and Claus Ropers — 4. Physical Institute - University of Göttingen, Göttingen, Germany
We present an ultrafast, nanoscale streaking scheme for field-driven photoemission control using single-cycle THz transients at the apex of a sharp gold tip . The locally enhanced THz-field allows for a high-contrast enhancement or suppression of the near-infrared photoemission yield and a tuning of the photoelectron kinetic energy distribution, both in spectral position and width. This streaking scheme is unique to nanostructures because of the strong sub-wavelength confinement of the driving field . In particular, the associated electron dynamics are governed by the momentary THz field at the instance of photoemission, rather than by a temporal integral, i.e. the vector potential, as in optical streaking experiments for attosecond spectroscopy . Besides the fundamental interest in the characterization and control of electron trajectories within ultrashort optical near-fields, the approach carries significant potential for pulse compression in ultrafast electron diffraction and microscopy experiments.
