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
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, reliable and efficient microwave circuits used in space applications, e.g. satellite transponder systems, are discussed. The main focus is on mixers, multipliers and power amplifiers. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Two novel types of diodes for emission and detection of THz radiation have been investigated. The diodes are based on high electron mobility III-V heterostructures. Both diodes are aimed for room-temperature operation, for which there is a demand for new THz technology. For emission, slot diodes based on an InGaAs heterostructure were studied. LÄS MER
4. Charge Transport in Semiconductor Nanowire Quantum Devices: From Single Quantum Dots to Topological Superconductors
Sammanfattning : This thesis focuses on charge transport in semiconductor InSb nanowire quantum devices, including the electron transport, the hole transport, and the Cooper pair transport. Devices in which InSb semiconductor nanowire quantum dots are coupled with normal metals, superconductors or the proximity effect induced topological superconductors are fabricated and measured.
