We show that a charge-density wave mode submerged in large conductivity of the stripe-type charge-ordered (CO) crystal of Pr0.5Sr0.5MnO3 (PSMO) can be extracted by exciting selective crystallographic planes using polarized terahertz field. Low energy (1–7 meV) dynamics have been explored in the (100), (110), and (111) epitaxial films of PSMO manganite. Of (110) and (111) films representing bulk-like CO, the former exhibits a peak in the conductivity-energy spectrum with attributes of charge-density wave mode along a specific in-plane axis. On the contrary, the CO (111) and the phase-separated (100) films lack this low energy mode but exhibit a Drude-like spectral behavior in the metallic regime. These studies reveal a variety in isothermal charge dynamics originating from the anisotropic nature of the stripe charge-order.
