  3. 3. Self-Switching Diodes for Zero-Bias Terahertz Detection

    Författare :Andreas Westlund; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; self-switching diode; noise-equivalent power; SSD; graphene; zero-bias; InAs; InGaAs; terahertz; detector;

    Sammanfattning : The self-switching diode (SSD) has been investigated as a potential terahertz detector in recent years. The SSD accomplishes a non-linear current-voltage relation through a field-effect, which enables detection at zero bias from microwave up to terahertz frequencies. In this work, SSDs were realised in two new materials; InAs and graphene. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Silicon micromachined waveguide components for terahertz systems

    Författare :Bernhard Beuerle; Joachim Oberhammer; Umer Shah; Kamal Sarabandi; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; micromachining; waveguide; terahertz; deep reactive ion etching; silicon on insulator; on-wafer characterization; InP; SiGe; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis presents silicon micromachined waveguide components for sub-terahertz and terahertz (THz) systems fabricated by deep reactive ion etching (DRIE). Historically the main driving force for the development of THz systems has been space-based scientific instruments for astrophysics, planetary and Earth science missions. LÄS MER
