Terahertz (THz) waves at 9.7, 10.1 and 10.6 THz were generated via difference frequency generation in high-quality InxG1−xaSe mixed crystals with a relatively high indium compositions (x = 0.040, 0.048, 0.074) grown from an indium flux. The phase-matching angle for THz wave generation was measured for each indium content. As a result, it is confirmed that the incident angle of the excitation light satisfying the phase-matching condition is shifted to a higher angle with an increase in the indium content.
