This work contains results from studying the electro-optical properties of bulk and few-layered Van der Waals materials including intercalated graphene, phosphorene, and tungsten disulfide thin films. Different production methods and substrates are considered. The objective of the research is to assess the relevance of application of these materials in terahertz (THz) time-domain spectroscopy (TDS). Therefore, the study is conducted in the visible, NIR (near-infrared) and THz frequency ranges as the most critically in need of research when searching for effective materials for TDS.
