Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the uni-travelling-carrier photodiode (UTC-PD) based photonic generation of terahertz waves, antenna designs for the terahertz radiation and a novelcatadioptric lens for quasioptical integration.The ongoing and accomplished research work on the UTC-PD, its limitations and optimisation scopes for attaining higher bandwidth and higher output power have been discussed.

Sammanfattning : A growing interest for making high resolution observations in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere has motivated the development of the multi-beam satellite-borne instrument Stratosphere-Troposphere Exchange And climate Monitor Radiometer (STEAMR). The measurements made by STEAMR will be used to monitor trace-gases and link the occurence of these to the Earth's climate by accurate modeling of the atmosphere. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The study of optical phenomena related to the strong electromagnetic response of noble metals (silver (Ag) and gold (Au) being most popular) over the last couple of decades has led to the emergence of a fast growing research area called plasmonics named after 'surface plasmons' which are electron density waves that propagate along the interface of a metal and a dielectric medium. Surface plasmons are formed by the coupling of light to the electrons on the metal surface subject to the fulfillment of certain physical conditions and they are bound to the metal surface. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : In recent years, there has been constant growth in using THz frequencies or mm, sub- mm wavelengths for various applications such as: Astronomy, Atmospheric studies, security, bio-medical imaging. All these applications are now seen more feasible due to rapid enhancements of semi-conductor processing technologies. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the analysis and optimisation of the uni-travelling-carrier photodiode (UTC-PD) for continuous-wave generation in terahertz (THz) frequencyrange. Photonic THz generation using UTC-PDs is extremely promising as it offers wide tunability, adequate output power and room temperature operation. LÄS MER
