In this contribution, we review the development of sources for far-infrared (terahertz) radiation based on laser-generated gas plasmas. We describe several generation mechanisms based on ponderomotive forces, external field screening, and optical second-harmonic biasing. These methods are compared with the standard techniques with respect to the achievable terahertz pulse energy.
