Compact, efficient, narrow linewidth, fiber based THz sources have been achieved by using the monolithic high power single-frequency pulsed fiber lasers in MOPA based on difference-frequency generation (DFG) in nonlinear optical crystals. We have observed the external cavity enhancement of DFG THz generation by using ZnGeP2 for the first time, and implemented a high spectral resolution THz spectrometer based on the developed fiber-based tunable narrow linewidth THz source.
