THz pulse generation in a nonlinear optical slab with an entrance surface having an echelon structure is demonstrated. The setup uses a transmission grating and a planeparallel lithium-niobate crystal slab, and ensures a good-quality, symmetric THz beam and enables scalability to high pulse energies.
