Генерація електромагнітних хвиль терагерцового діапазону з використанням методики помпування нахиленим фронтом є найсучаснішим підходом на сьогодні. У статті зроблено огляд традиційних джерел терагерцового випромінювання. Також описано теоретичні аспекти й експериментальні результати генерації хвиль за допомогою накачки з нахиленим фронтом на кристалі LiNbO3.
